Patient Name: Cassandra M.
Diagnosis: Chronic Migraines
Type of Procedure: Omega Procedure

How was your experience with your Patient Care Manager?
Excellent! I had a wonderful experience with Hilary. She anticipated all of my needs and held my hand through the entire process. I never felt pressured or lost. I could have not made it through this journey without her.

How was your experience with your doctor?
Dr. Will was excellent. I felt that I was the priority. I feel honored to have been his patient.

How did your experience with Migraine Treatment Centers of America compare to other healthcare experiences?
After fighting for over a decade to have relief from these headaches, I do not think that there is a comparison with other healthcare experiences. I hardly ever have a headache, and when I do it is manageable.

What was your life like before surgery?
I had a minimal quality of life prior to surgery. I was unable to go out in the sun, go to the movies or be around people. I did not want to leave the house.

What is your life like now, after surgery?
I only have an occasional sinus headache now that is easily managed. On the off chance that a migraine is beginning, a quick adjustment of the device and my headache subsides quickly. My life is full again.
[Now] I have been able to go to the movie theater again. Before, the sound and lights of the screen killed me. Not anymore!

What would you say to someone who is contemplating the Omega Procedure?
If your life is hindered enough to consider the procedure then you probably need to go forward. It is nice to think without fighting through a fog again.
