We’ve been tracking patients for nearly three years, and they report they are still pain free
Dallas, TX (PRWEB) July 13, 2011
Ascendant Neuro announced today that renowned pain specialist Ken Reed, M.D. will be the featured speaker at a continuing medical education (CME) luncheon hosted by Mercy Health Center in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma at noon on Thursday, July 14, 2011. Dr. Reed’s address—“Clinical Evidence: Peripheral Nerve Stimulation for Chronic Migraine Headaches”—is designed to help family practitioners, general internists and sub-specialists in medicine and surgery learn about a revolutionary new migraine treatment, the StimPath Procedure.
Dr. Reed, along with his colleague, Kelly Will, M.D., were recently awarded the prestigious Cephalalgia Award from the International Headache Society for their groundbreaking research regarding the StimPath Procedure a migraine treatment that uses neurostimulation to treat both the occipital and supraorbital nerves that can cause migraine pain.
“We’ve seen remarkable results with the StimPath Procedure,” 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.”
Joining the discussion will be Dr. Dustan Buckley, chief of staff at Mercy Health Center and the mother of one of Dr. Reed’s migraine patients. Mercy Health Center is accredited by the Oklahoma State Medical Association. Healthcare professionals interested in attending Dr. Reed’s lecture can call the CME office at (405)752-3806.
