Dallas, TX, August 04, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Ascendant Neuro announced today that renowned pain specialist, Ken Reed, M.D. will be featured on Dallas-Fort Worth’s Sunday morning show Top Docs at 10 a.m. on August 14 on KDFW-TV. Dr. Reed will discuss the StimPath procedure, an innovative migraine treatment that offers relief to people who suffer from chronic migraine pain.
Joining Dr. Reed on Top Docs will be Michael P., a young man who suffered from severe migraines before he underwent the StimPath treatment. “I had a headache 24/7,” Michael said. “The only time I had any relief was when I was sleeping.”
After having the StimPath procedure, Michael is now enjoying his life pain free. “I have more energy. I am easier to be around and I don’t have to sleep as much,” he said. “In February, I played my first round of golf—all 18 holes without a headache.”
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 treatment.
During the procedure, wires are implanted under the skin to deliver electrical impulses—or neurostimulation—to the occipital and supraorbital nerves that cause severe headache pain.
“More than 30 million people suffer from chronic migraine pain. We’ve seen remarkable results with the StimPath migraine treatment,” Dr. Reed said. “Patients with debilitating migraines who did not respond to other treatments or therapies now enjoy long-term relief from their headache pain.”
