For years, doctors have been treating migraine headaches with Botox but now, there may be a more permanent solution which is surgery.
Botox works by temporarily paralyzing muscles.
For patients whose migraines are successfully treated with Botox doctors say surgery to remove the problematic muscle can yield the same results, on a more long-term basis.
This use of Botox is not approved by the FDA or covered by insurance.
Doctors say the Botox treatments and surgery do not necessarily get rid of migraines completely but can greatly improve the quality of life.
