My passion is the surgical treatment of headache disorders.
I am a double-board certified craniofacial and plastic surgeon. A large part of my practice involves the surgical treatment of headaches, and I have patients who have been successfully treated from all over the United States and internationally. Even if you end up not being a candidate for surgical treatment of your chronic headaches, I hope to help educate patients and physicians on this innovative, life-changing treatment option. Other facets of my practice include craniofacial surgery (cleft lip & palate, jaw distraction osteogenesis, and skull remodeling surgery) and cosmetic surgery (mainly focused on the face).
Headache disorders (migraine and occipital neuralgia among them) are debilitating conditions that affect millions of people each year. Surgery can minimize the pain of the headache or completely eliminate the symptoms approximately 85% of the time. I devote a large portion of my practice to the surgical treatment of headaches, and have successfully treated patients from across the United States and around the world.
If you have headaches and have difficulty getting relief, perhaps I can help. I have patients who have come from across the country and found relief after trying and failing numerous other headache treatment options.
