The Reed Procedure® Trial Stimulator

At US Migraine, we recognize the importance of ensuring a medical procedure’s suitability before fully committing. That’s why we provide an opportunity to experience the neurostimulator device employed in the Reed Procedure® for a trial period. This allows you to gauge its effectiveness in alleviating your pain before opting for the permanent stimulator implant.

During this trial procedure, we insert a temporary unit beneath the skin—similar to an IV tube—which remains in place for a few days to gauge its impact on headache relief. Patients wear this temporary unit for a period of three to seven days. The outcomes from this temporary unit are usually remarkable, empowering patients to make an informed decision about the procedure’s potential success. Following the trial phase, the temporary unit is removed.

Should the trial stimulator prove effective—as it does for over 80% of our patients—individuals can proceed confidently with the permanent stimulator implantation. Conversely, if the patient does not see a significant improvement in their head pain, they can choose not to move forward with the permanent stimulator. We are highly confident that the permanent stimulator will work effectively on patients who have a successful trial.
