Dallas, TX (PRWEB) July 01, 2011
Ascendant Neuro announced today that renowned pain specialist, Ken Reed, M.D. will be featured on the top-rated morning show, FOX & Friends at 7:45 a.m. ET (6:45 a.m. CST) on Wednesday, July 6, 2011. Dr. Reed will discuss the successful use of the StimPath, a unique migraine treatment that offers relief to people who suffer from chronic migraine pain.
Dr. Reed, along with his colleague Kelly Will, M.D., were recently awarded the prestigious Cephalalgia Award from the International Headache Society for their ground-breaking research regarding the neurostimulation of both the occipital and supraorbital nerves using the implantable StimPath procedure.
Wires, implanted under the skin deliver electrical impulses—or neurostimulation—to the occipital and supraorbital nerves that cause headache pain. Dr. Reed compares the StimPath treatment to a pacemaker implanted in a heart patient.
“We’ve seen remarkable results with the StimPath migraine treatment,” Dr. Reed says. “Patients with debilitating migraines who did not respond to other treatments or therapies now enjoy long-term relief from their headache pain. We’ve been tracking patients for nearly three years, and they report they are still pain free.”
Nearly 36 million Americans of all ages suffer from chronic migraine pain. “Chronic migraine pain can take a devastating toll on a person’s life,” Dr. Reed says. “Often people can’t work, they can’t enjoy quality time with their family or friends, they become isolated and depressed. I’m glad FOX & Friends is focusing on this important health issue and providing viewers with information about this promising treatment.”
