Dr Egilius Spierings

Recommended Posts

Never heard of him but surgery as we know it is not a treatment for cluster headaches.  There has been significant discussion about this here and elsewhere.  If someone claims “ to cut is to cure” as regards headaches skeptics should rule the day.

There is a Dr (not in my opinion) that touts surgery like this guy in South Africa. I’d stay far away as pebbles alluded.

If I can say so, those were some pretty fast jumps.  Plenty of info about him here.  Not an unimpressive resume.  No mention of surgery.  Work on CGRP; a developer of Imitrex.  https://medvadis.com/our-team-2/

He co-wrote some articles with the "bad" Dr. Shevel about migraine patients with "extracranial" migraines and with cervical muscle issues, and those have turned out (from what I have read) to be useful for treating a subset of migraines.
