Migraine Treatment Centers of America Welcomes Chronic Migraine Specialist in Phoenix, AZ

Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) March 02, 2013

Migraine Treatment Centers of America (“Migraine Centers”) is pleased to welcome Abram Burgher, M.D. in the Phoenix, Arizona area. This new and exciting partnership will offer the Omega migraine procedure at Freedom Pain Hospital, the nation's first pain hospital.

Utilizing technology that is similar to a pacemaker, the Omega migraine procedure is used to treat chronic migraine pain through the implantation of a small device. The device confuses the nerves associated with chronic migraine pain, which prevents the pain signal from reaching the brain.

The Omega procedure is covered by most insurance providers for qualified patients, has seen a 90% success rate in targeted migraine conditions, and is designed to provide long-lasting pain relief. Prior to permanent implantation, each patient will undergo a trial, in which they will be able to determine whether the device offers sufficient pain relief and improved function.

The Omega procedure is offering hope, pain relief, and improved function to those who suffer from this debilitating, painful condition. Cynthia B., a migraine sufferer who has undergone the Omega procedure, says, “My professional and personal life has improved dramatically. I have not had to miss one day of work because of migraines. I’ve also been able to get off of all preventative medications.”

Dr. Burgher is a Phoenix-based, double board-certified pain management expert who completed his internship, residency, and fellowship in Pain Management at the world-renowned Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN.

Dr. Burgher treats patients with chronic pain from conditions including migraines, chronic headaches and trigeminal neuralgia, with the help of the surgical facilities at Freedom Pain Hospital in Scottsdale, Arizona. This acute care and outpatient surgical facility is dedicated to a multi-disciplinary, complementary approach in the evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment of chronic pain.

In addition to his clinical practice, Dr. Burgher is dedicated to research, and works diligently toward furthering to technology development in the area of pain management. He is currently involved in clinical research in patient care and safety for individuals suffering with chronic pain. He is a clinical investigator and the Director of Investigator Relations at the HOPE Research Institute, and Vice President for Clinical Innovations at Pain Care Solutions. Dr. Burgher's main area of interest is on the applications for implanted pain therapy devices that can help manage chronic nerve pain.

Dr. Burgher is the lead author of various publications in peer-reviewed medical journals, as well as co-lead researcher in a human clinical trial supported by the National Institutes of Health.

“Dr. Abram Burgher’s pain management expertise and interest in advanced solutions for treatment make him an excellent partner for Migraine Treatment Centers of America in Phoenix,” said Alex Noffsinger, president of Migraine Centers.
