Around 30 million Americans get migraine headaches.  And some migraines are really bad – to the point of nausea or throwing up.  For some people, migraines can last up to 48 hours and keep them from going into work, much less leaving the house.  Recently, doctors have found a new surgery that been showing an over 80% success rate – and it’s being done by plastic surgeons.  The surgeon makes incisions on nerve trigger points around the head, which relieves pressure.  We talk to the only surgeon in Nevada doing this procedure about the pros and cons.
