In 60% of patients the result is final. In the rest we have found that the crisis was far distanced in time and also have a much less pronounced symptoms than in normal life, so that the treatment allows them to join a social, family and professional life so practically full and without any hassles. We monitor all patients during the first year to check that the healing is correct and symptoms decreased or disappeared entirely.

Migraine surgery is aimed at those patients diagnosed by their specialist neurology migraine episodes, more than one or two a week and begin with symptoms in the corrugator muscles, ie the eyebrows. These patients are candidates for this surgery.
