Migraine Treatment

Migraine Headaches

Migraines, facial pain, chronic headaches, and trigeminal neuralgia are all ailments that can be crippling for the sufferer. At Advanced Vein & Interventional patients can experience immediate and lasting pain relief with a SphenoCath procedure, also known as a sphenopalatine ganglion (SPG) block. This breakthrough headache treatment is a simple therapy that is completed in just minutes. Image guidance is used to direct the SphenoCath, a soft, tiny applicator, to apply medication to the SPG, a bundle of nerves in the back of the nasal cavity. AVI physicians have been so successful with this procedure that doctors, from across the country, travel to Nebraska to learn from their experience.

“I went for my first treatment back in March and I’ve been headache free since (aside from a few small ones in between appointments). Best thing I’ve ever done! Dr. Braun and his staff are amazing!”
