Migraines are an affliction that can not only be painful, but debilitating too. According to a press release showcased on the Wall Street Journal site, numbers show that out of the 36 million Americans that experience migraines, female sufferers outnumber males three to one. And while the reasons why may not be clear, the medical community is making strides towards some revolutionary ways to achieve migraine relief. The news couldn’t come sooner for those who do experience this type of suffering and is also quite timely, with National Migraine Awareness Month in the U.S. scheduled for June. For those looking to hear more about recent migraine breakthroughs, Advanced Migraine Relief, a leader in the area of migraine pain management has announced that Dr. Jack Chapman, their Medical Director, will be conducting a session entitled “The Transforma Procedure – A Life Changing Procedure to Treat Chronic Migraines” at The Houston Ultimate Women’s Expo, which is being held this weekend. According to the article:
The Transforma Procedure(SM) is a brand new, minimally invasive procedure that uses neurostimulation technology to block the sensation of migraine pain. Patients can test-drive the technology through a trial procedure to see if it’s right for them. Once the trial is completed and is successful, the permanent procedure is conducted using leads placed just under the skin and a battery implanted in the back hip area. Allowing for completely customized programming for each patient, the device enables patients to adjust the level and location of stimulation to best fit their individual needs.
The combination of expert medical professionals and the latest neurostimulation technology allows the Transforma Procedure to offer an 80 percent success rate. Additionally, Advanced Migraine Relief patients benefit from support professionals who accompany them throughout the entire process, assist with insurance, and arrange for transportation, housing as well as recovery.
Greg Lewis, the President of Advanced Migraine Relief, details the company’s aims to not only provide pain management for migraine sufferers, but also to educate the public on the issue of migraines and the reality of daily life for those who are afflicted. Dr. Chapman, who is currently in private practise, earned his education at various Texas-based institutions including Houston Baptist University, Baylor College of Medicine, and the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston, where he completed a residency in anesthesiology. The Houston Ultimate Women’s Expo is being held at the Reliant Center, and Advanced Migraine Relief can be found at Booths 201-203. Dr. Chapman’s seminar is scheduled for April 20 at 11:30am and April 21 at 2:00 pm.
