A plastic surgeon at the University Of Texas South-western Medical Center has developed a new surgical technique that uses Botox which is generally employed for cosmetic surgeries in treating migraines.

New Surgical Technique Using Botox Promises Relief To Migraineurs (1)

In the procedure, the probable peripheral nerve triggers are first identified and then Botox administered at those sites during the surgery. These sites would be those that the doctor thinks are the ones contributing towards the migraine pain. This method is not recommended for everyone and is said to be prescribed to migraineurs on case-to-case basis.

Dr. Jeffrey Janis, has come up with this technique based on 5 years of study on anatomies of animals where nerves were decompressed to provide long-lasting relief to acute pain. In one of his recent studies, Dr. Janis exhibited the success of his technique. The study found that the use of Botox in the surgery led to average improvement of 85.5 percent over original symptoms such as frequency, severity and duration — but surgery produced a 96.6 percent average improvement over original symptoms.

However, according to Dr. Janis, “This type of surgery is not for everyone, but for those who have not found relief, these procedures are proving effective.” (2)
