Advanced Migraine Relief today announced that Medical Director Dr. Jack Chapman will serve as a seminar speaker during The Houston Ultimate Women's Expo at Reliant Center on Saturday, April 20 at 11:30 a.m. and Sunday, April 21 at 2 p.m. Advanced Migraine Relief will also exhibit at the event in Booth 201-203.
With National Migraine Awareness Month approaching in June, Chapman will explain to expo attendees just how debilitating chronic migraine pain can be, and present the latest medical breakthrough for battling it during his session titled "The Transforma Procedure - A Life Changing Procedure to Treat Chronic Migraines." Studies show that women are nearly three times more likely to suffer from migraines than men.
The Transforma Procedure(SM) is a brand new, minimally invasive procedure that uses neurostimulation technology to block the sensation of migraine pain. Patients can test-drive the technology through a trial procedure to see if it's right for them. Once the trial is completed and is successful, the permanent procedure is conducted using leads placed just under the skin and a battery implanted in the back hip area. Allowing for completely customized programming for each patient, the device enables patients to adjust the level and location of stimulation to best fit their individual needs.
The combination of expert medical professionals and the latest neurostimulation technology allows the Transforma Procedure to offer an 80 percent success rate. Additionally, Advanced Migraine Relief patients benefit from support professionals who accompany them throughout the entire process, assist with insurance, and arrange for transportation, housing as well as recovery. Advanced Migraine Relief's philosophy is "We're your ally!"
"It's our goal to educate both the public and our potential patients about the significance of migraines, the stigmas attached to migraine sufferers, and the potential options for treating chronic pain," said Greg Lewis, President at Advanced Migraine Relief. "We're pleased to take part in The Houston Ultimate Women's Expo and we look forward to highlighting that Advanced Migraine Relief, the nation's top specialist for treating chronic migraine pain, is right here in Houston."
