Patient Name: Deb H.
Diagnosis: Chronic Migraines
Type of Procedure: Omega Procedure

How was your experience with your patient coordinator?
Fantastic! Hilary was not only caring and understanding but so good at making all the arrangements, making sure the procedure was approved by my insurance. She kept me in the loop at all times and was easy to get a hold of. She was excited for me when the Omega procedure worked and just overall helpful and friendly.

How was your experience with your doctor?
Another wonderful experience. Since I am out of state it was so helpful that he did a phone consult with me to see if this was even the right procedure for me. I loved his bedside manner, always made me feel comfortable, explained things so that I understand, and never seemed in a rush. Had a good sense of humor as well. I could tell he had been doing this for a while and felt very confident with him treating me.

Pre-Surgery Condition/Lifestyle:
Very limited. After having daily headaches for 29 years and them getting progressively worse, I was so limited on what I could do. Everything was always revolving around my headaches. I had to give up a lot of things that I enjoyed. My marriage suffered and I had to work from home. My social life was always “up in the air”. I had lost hope on several occasions as all of the previous methods and treatments had failed and had been denied twice by my insurance for a neurostimulator.

Post-Surgery Condition/Outcome:
I have a brand new life now. Although we are still “tweaking” the program a little, I have been able to do many things already that I was formerly unable to do like go to a concert, sleep in without having a headache making me get out of bed, see a movie, improvement in my marriage, go out with my girlfriends, and I have imagined many other things that I will now be able to do without the fear of my headaches interfering. I am super excited!
