Nerve compression that leads to migraines

Peripheral nerves of the head and neck can get irritated, compressed or entrapped and trigger migraines. Nerve decompression surgery removes muscle tissue (tough tissue called fascia), bone or blood vessels that constrict the nerves, giving the nerves more room and improving or relieving the condition.

A breakthrough in treatment

  • Migraine nerve decompression has been researched and implemented at Ohio State’s Wexner Medical Center, yielding a high success rate – over 94 percent of patients get significant improvement or elimination of headaches.
  • Plastic surgery for migraine requires specialized expertise and experience. It is not performed anywhere else in the greater Columbus area and only in limited institutions across the country.
  • Our team’s approach helps make breakthroughs like this possible by tapping into the expertise of our various physicians. In the case of migraine, we achieved these results by having neurology, neurosurgery and plastic surgery all work together.
