Headaches can vary in nature, symptoms, and causes. The complex nature of these aspects of headaches has led to a multitude of classifications and headache terminology. The website headaches.org lists 24 different types of headaches.

Patients may be diagnosed with one of many different headache syndromes. Some headaches arise from “central” problems which can range from tumors to chemical imbalances. Most headaches are due to compression on superficial nerves in the head and neck which cause pain that is perceived deeper in the head- it is these headaches that can be addressed with migraine headache surgery.

In particular, patients who are diagnosed with “cluster headaches”, “migraine headaches”, “chronic daily headaches”, “occipital neuralgia”, and many “post-traumatic headache” patients may be the best candidates for headache surgery.
