Surgery for cronic(chronic) daily headaches.

Posted By Punz Wolff on November 22, 1998 at 10:26:15:







My father has suffered from daily cronic (chronic) "tension" headaches for over 20
years. Over that time he has seen numerous doctors and has tried every
available treatment currently known to medical science. And I mean every-
thing. Nothing has helped.
Recently I heard that surgery could be done to sever the nerves in the
area of the headache. That this would leave numbness in the area but the
headaches would be gone. Can you provide any further information on this
proceedure and/or recommended a doctor in the South Florida area who may be
able to do the proceedure. My father is now 82 and lives in Delray Beach.
Florida.
Thank you,
Punz Wolff
