Am I a Candidate For The Reed Procedure®?

The Reed Procedure®: A Potentially Permanent Surgical Migraine Treatment

Determining whether or not you are a candidate for the Reed Procedure® depends mainly on the severity of your symptoms and your migraine history. Dr. Reed will thoroughly review your medical history during your initial consultation to determine if you are a candidate for the procedure. However, in general, if you meet the following criteria, you are likely a good candidate:

Chronic Headaches

You experience at least 10 headache days per month.

Severe Head Pain

Your headaches are severely painful and your symptoms are debilitating.

No Lasting Relief

You have tried traditional, more conservative migraine treatments for at least 6 months, but you have not achieved lasting migraine relief.

Am I a Candidate If I Have Chronic Head Pain But Not A Diagnosis of Migraine?

Yes, absolutely! You do not have to have a diagnosis of migraine to be considered a candidate for the Reed Procedure®. At Reed Migraine Centers, we specialize in treating chronic, severe head pain that hasn’t adequately responded to conservative treatments, including any head pain that occurs consistently and frequently. We have had tremendous success with the Reed Procedure® for virtually all types of chronic head pain. If you have been diagnosed with chronic head pain, we would like to discuss how the Reed Procedure® might help you find the relief you have been seeking.
