Frontal Migraine Surgery
The pain typically starts above the eyebrows. Treatment involves decompressing the supraorbital and supratrochlear nerves in the glabellar area by resecting the corrugator and depressor supercilii muscles using a minimally invasive endoscopic approach similar to that used for a cosmetic forehead lift.
Relief is provided by either releasing muscle fiber or freeing nerves through decompression surgery. The specific nature of the surgery depends on the trigger site. Doctor Jason D. Johnson releases the “frowning” muscles between the eyes – called the glabellar muscles – which irritate nerve branches on both sides and lead to headaches.
