About Pacific Migraine

Pacific Migraine specializes in the surgical treatment of migraines. When patients do not respond to standard treatment protocols, Pacific Migraine leads the way with an innovative, minimally invasive procedure.

Within the past 10 years, medical researchers have identified trigger points in the head and neck that cause migraine headaches to start. This research has shown that surgery directed at the trigger points will eliminate or markedly relieve migraines in more than 84% of patients over the long-term.

Patients who have undergone the migraine procedure report fewer migraines or complete elimination of migraine headaches, less medication use, fewer days lost from work and family time, and most importantly, less pain.

At Pacific Migraine, we are all about you — your needs, your care, your treatment and your results.
