Migraine Surgery

Many men and women struggle with chronic, debilitating migraines. Pain, nausea, and sensitivity to light can make even simple activities a challenge. For patients who haven’t responded well to other migraine treatment methods, migraine surgery in Little Rock can be a powerful solution for select patients. Dr. Eric Wright is the only doctor in Arkansas to perform this procedure and has helped countless patients improve their quality of life.

What is migraine surgery?

The goal of migraine surgery is to reduce the frequency, duration, and pain levels of a patient’s headaches. This relief is achieved by adjusting the delicate connective tissues around specific bundles of nerves. Many migraines are caused by the compression and irritation of certain nerves across the face and head. By relieving the pressure on these key points, the nerves relax and stop triggering headaches.

While headaches potentially can be eliminated entirely by surgery, a successful surgery will, at minimum, decrease the severity and frequency. The results are long-lasting and allow patients to enjoy a life free from chronic migraines.

Who is a good candidate for migraine surgery?

There are many factors to consider before undergoing migraine surgery. You may be a good candidate if you:

  • Have been diagnosed with migraines by a neurologist
  • Failed numerous medications
  • Struggle with severe migraine symptoms that negatively impact your day-to-day life, experiencing migraines greater than 15 days a month

During your one-on-one consultation with Dr. Wright, you will be able to discuss your medical history and see if this procedure is right for you. Specific diagnostic exams and office procedures can determine if the nerve decompression surgery will be of benefit.
