  • Over 10% of the population, including children, suffers from migraines – more than diabetes and asthma combined!

  • Peripheral nerve compression and overstimulation act as triggers for migraine headaches.
  • The branches of the trigeminal nerve run through strong facial muscles. Muscle contracture irritates the nerve and causes the migraine attack.

  • Sometimes insurance will cover this surgery after Dr. Evdokimow shows evidence that conservative management has failed to control the migraine headaches.
  • Recent advances in Regenerative medicine have shown that microvesicles (exosomes) can be successfully used in the treatment of Migraine headaches
