What are the Published Results?

 

A recent study from Georgetown University followed 190 patients who had migraines secondary to occipital neuralgia (i.e. peripheral nerve compression) and who underwent surgical decompression. At an average follow-up of one year, 80.5% of patients experienced 50% or greater pain relief and over 40% of the patients experienced complete relief of their headaches (Ducic, et al, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, May, 2009, 1453-1461). In addition, another study published just last year demonstrated that at 5 years post-surgery, these benefits persist with continued reductions in headache severity, frequency, and/or duration (Guyuron, et al, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, February, 2011, 603-608). Dr. Peled’s results are comparable to these results and as you can see by going to the ‘Testimonials’ page, many of his patients are now headache-free. It is estimated that migraines afflict over 35 million people in the United States alone. The annual cost to the healthcare system in terms of ER visits, medications, injections and lost productivity is estimated to be in the range of $15 billion per annum. Fortunately, the surgical treatment noted above has shown extremely promising results.
