Seeking migraine relief through surgery

Some migraine sufferers are finding relief by visiting their plastic surgeon.  Botox is successful in freezing nerves that trigger headaches, the problem is that botox wears off.

In a new study, surgeons removed those muscles for a permanent fix.  Some study participants got the surgery, while others got a sham procedure.

A year later, migraines were eliminated for more than half of the patients who got the real surgery.  Just 4-percent in the placebo group experienced the same relief.
