Surgeries to decompress C1 and C2 nerve roots

Hi, My husband has had one sided ice pick in the back of head (occipital region) pain daily for 2 years and 3 months.  He is on narcotics --every other form of treatment has had no effect on the pain.  The only form he has not tried is surgery.  I read last night that someone had a nerve root decompression surgery for similar pain and it was successful.  I am trying to get my husband in to see Dr. Jho of the Microsurgery institute for a consult.  He is in Philadelphia.  I was wondering if anyone knew of a good surgeon in the Boston area for this kind of work.  It would be easier not to travel.
Many thanks,
Pat
