On the occasion of the European Migraine Day of Action, the Headache Treatment Office of IASO General Clinic offers 5 free-of-charge medical assessments for consultation in regard to the surgical treatment of migraine.
Migraine is the 2nd most important medical problem worldwide and the leading cause of disability in people under 50 years of age. It is a chronic neurological disease and is manifested with intense headaches, which are usually accompanied by symptoms such as intolerance to light, noise, nausea, vomiting and the need to rest or lie down. It mainly affects young women and it is often associated with the menstrual cycle. With proper information and treatment, those who suffer from migraines can improve their daily life and have a better quality of life.
Until recently, treatment options for chronic headaches in Greece included mainly medicinal regimens, relaxation techniques, acupuncture or homeopathy. The surgical team of the Headache Treatment Office of IASO General Clinic has the ability to decompress the nerve responsible for the headache through microsurgery (using a microscope), with excellent results of complete or very significant relief in selected patients. The surgical indication concerns only patients who do not manage to find relief with conservative therapeutic means.
