The approaches to the complex field of chronic headache are rapidly evolving; accordingly, this timely and well-illustrated volume offers an in-depth description of all currently available surgical options for the treatment of migraine and headache (MH). With more than 300 high-quality figures, and written by an international panel of experts, this first edition of the Atlas of Surgical Therapy for Migraine and Tension-Type Headache, provides detailed, step-by-step instructions on how to perform state-of-the-art MH surgical techniques, while reviewing relevant anatomical issues and their implications for treatment. In light of the interdisciplinary nature of migraine treatment, this book will prove an invaluable resource for MH practitioners from the resident plastic surgeon to the neurosurgeon and neurologist, and health care professionals across various fields of clinical medicine.
