Gender and Migraines

Dr. Harry Salinas, Plastic Surgeon with Miami Cancer Institute, says migraines are more common in women than in men. According to Dr. Miguel Angel Medina, Director of Microsurgery with Miami Cancer Institute, there's a small predominance towards women, but it’s not an overwhelming predominance. Salinas highlights 50% of the patients that come in get complete relief, because they only operate on patients who respond to their diagnostic maneuvers, which are the nerve blocks.
