Here are the steps leading up to a life-changing Omega Procedure:

Step
1
Talk to a Patient Care Manager
Your Patient Care Manager will ask you some questions to determine whether you are a candidate for the procedure. If you are, this Patient Care Manager will be assigned to your case and will be with you for the remainder of the process.
Step
2
Meet Your Doctor
It’s time to speak with your doctor for an evaluation, and have a conversation about your pain, your goals, etc. Ideally, this meeting would happen in person. If you are a traveling patient, phone evaluations are sometimes available on a case by case basis.
Step
3
The Temporary Procedure
Your doctor will outfit you with an external version of the Omega Procedure. You will wear this for 4-7 days. While you wear it, your doctor will instruct you to challenge your migraine by indulging in some triggers. If you trigger a migraine and successfully block the pain, you will know it has worked.
Step
4
The Permanent Procedure
You will be given general anesthesia. Depending on individual factors, you may or may not be required to stay overnight for observation in the surgery center. You may be back to work or play within days of the procedure, but will take a few weeks to a few months for the incision to fully heal. Your physician will most likely want to do some follow-up with you, but physicians vary in their preferences on this point.
Step
5
Enjoy Your Freedom
By this step, you will have been migraine-free- -or very nearly migraine free-- for a month or more. What will you be doing? Going to the amusement park? Travelling? Working? Playing with your kids? At this point, it’s up to you!
