If you’re living with debilitating migraines and headaches, chances are you’ve tried just about everything for relief. And, if you’re like most other sufferers, the pain continues to interfere with work, family time and the life you love.
Consider that nearly two-thirds of patients have given up on their migraine medications. Popular prescriptions can run over $500 every month and include a variety of unpleasant side effects. Meanwhile, newer alternative therapies may involve needles—with many people choosing to just wait out migraine symptoms while worrying about their next attack.
There's a Better Way to Get Your Life Back
In our commitment to leading the way, Fremont Health is proud to introduce SphenoCath®, a game-changing treatment for migraines, cluster headaches, facial pain (trigeminal neuralgia) and maxillary pain (upper teeth). By treating pain right at the source, this simple procedure has brought immediate and long-lasting relief for 90% of our patients. Watch one woman’s journey below.
How SphenoCath Stops Migraines
The sphenopalatine ganglion (SPG) is a collection of nerves just behind the nose that is often responsible for chronic head pain.
During the 15-minute treatment, your doctor uses a soft, specially designed catheter to comfortably reach the SPG. Medication is then delivered to block the nerve signals that cause migraines and other head-related conditions.
At Fremont, the SphenoCath procedure is performed by Jeffrey Himmelberg, MD, one of the region’s leading headache specialists.
