Implantable Device May Help Ease Tough Migraines

will make a huge difference for millions of migraine sufferers with chronic migraine."

The results do mirror what Lipton has seen in his practice. "This shows that [the treatment] can give chronic migraine sufferers their lives back."

Dr. Robert Duarte, director of the Pain Center at North Shore-Long Island Jewish Health System in Manhasset, N.Y., said that the new device should not be considered a first-line treatment for migraine, however.

"You need to be evaluated by a headache specialist, and make sure all treatment options are tried before installing a stimulator, but it is an option and there is definitely evidence that it works," he said. Duarte is not affiliated with the new study.

"It is not a cure, but a treatment option that can reduce frequency and intensity of headaches in some people," Duarte added. Doctors can also do a trial run using an external stimulator to see if it will work before implanting the device, he said.
