After years of occipital migraine pain, related to Chiari Malformation surgery, my headaches are gone and I have returned to work. Your surgery was 7 months ago. Here I am at a recent conference, at the head of the table. Thank you Doctor Dellon for removing those injured nerves. SL
When I first met Dr. Dellon, I was in debilitating pain. I had been diagnosed with a condition called Chiari Malformation and had to under go a craniectomy to make more room in the back of my head for my brain. That was in 2014. My mom and I reached out to Dr. Dellon this year (2016) after spending a year and a half with constant headaches and migraines. I had tried, PT, therapeutic massage, acupuncture, Botox, monthly cortisone injections into the nerves in the back of my head and that seemed to give me some relief but only temporarily. I came to Dr. Dellon in a desperate situation. I was officially debilitated by pain at the young age of 31 and it felt hopeless. After countless specialists, Dr. Dellon found that I had nerve damage as a result of my craniectomy. Immediately, he and his office started working with me to heal my pain and I had my first surgery in July. We did the back of my head where I was relieved of several damaged nerves. I completely stopped having migraines, still headaches but a step in the right direction! Two weeks ago, I had my second and final surgery with Dr. Dellon to repair the nerves in the front of my head to eliminate my headaches. I haven't had a headache yet. The longest I have gone in TWO YEARS! Dr. Dellon is a compassionate and respectful doctor. He always made sure that I was educated about what we were trying to accomplish. In all of his talents he also is the kind of doctor who still makes relationships with his patients, checking up on me personally rather than sending me a recorded message. Dr. Dellon not only saved my sanity but he saved my live. I still have some healing to do but I am well on my way and for the first time in a very long time, hope is by my side.
Thank you Dr. Dellon and thank you to Luiann for helping me. You have changed my life !

It took my brain 3 months to realize "Wait, I DON'T HAVE CONSTANT MIGRAINE HEADACHES ANYMORE!!" I had lived in pain for so long. My joy doubled! Dr Dellon, I've seen a lot of doctors and you're #1 in many ways! PB, Texas
This patient had a complete resolution of her daily migraine headaches on the RIGHT side of her head. She was 7 weeks from surgery at the time this video was taken. She had a decompression of the RIGHT supraorbital nerve. She reports that she was able to stop all of her migraine medications and has not had a single migraine since the operation was performed. These migraine headaches were felt to be due to I nerve compression of the supraorbital nerve causing her referred pain syndrome into the distribution of the nerve. Decompression of this secured her migraines and her chronic headaches that she had for years.

This patient is 6 months status post decompression of the greater occipital nerve for severe posterior migraine headaches and greater occipital neuralgia. He has had a complete relief of his posterior migraines and he has had tremendous improvement in his posterior neck pain.

I suffered right frontal migraine headaches for 7 years after my brain surgery. Since you decompressed my supra-orbital nerve, I am now one month headache free.
Migraine headaches have almost disappeared now 5 months after Dr Dellon did a neurolysis on my supra-orbital nerve. You cannot see the scar even. Thank you Dr Dellon
Migraine headaches are gone following surgery on the occipetal nerve by Dr Dellon. "I was able to overcome my 12 years of suffering, and your surgery changed my life. I have been wanting to get this surgery known and out to the public somehow so that people can consider it for themselves". Here are photos from my wedding, 6 months after your surgery relieved my pain.
Migraine headaches greatly improved sufficiently that I could travel with my family to visit the Grand Canyon and Carlsbad Caverns from my home in the mid-west. It is three months after Dr. Dellon operated on the nerves near my right eye to relieve the pressure on these nerves, which has given me the first real relief I have had in ten years.
