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.

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.

I agree @CHfather, personally after my research (and sucess using the methods here) I wouldn't consider surgery. Granted the 'surgical work' of Dr. Shevel is frightening & the promos were misleading. I think we sometimes rush to judge. Surgery is a personal choice, of course @ClusterHeadSurvivor had 4 unsuccessful surgeries that caused addditional problems & turned to the methods here.
