Erlanger Medical Center in Chattanooga, Tenn., has begun offering nerve decompression surgery to patients with chronic migraines. "It works by identifying and targeting trigger points on the head, front, sides or back of the head, then identifying the nerves and decompressing the nerves with small, minimally invasive incision," plastic surgeon Jimmy Waldrop of the Plastic Surgery Group said. One patient who had suffered chronic, debilitating migraines for years said she was eventually able to discontinue taking medication after the surgery.
