Dr. Sandeep Amin, Rush Pain Center Sandeep Amin , M.D. , Assistant Professor of Anesthesiology, Rush University Medical Center and Director of the Rush Pain Center at Rush Oak Park Hospital has been interviewed by NBC and Fox News, and reported on numerous other news sources such CBS, ABC, CNN and BBC) for his innovative use of an Implanted Neurostimulator for treatment of severe, chronic headaches and other atypical face pain.

Nerve stimulation "has done wonders for this kind of headaches," said Amin, who has treated several patients with implants who have long suffered unrelieved headaches after brain surgery and/or post-traumatic head injuries. He points out that "Oftentimes, these patients are bounced around to multiple physicians trying to figure out what's wrong with them and undergo computerized axial tomography (CT) scans or a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to determine whether they have a blood clot, tumor or aneurysm that is causing the pain.
However, it appears that attention has never been given to the external nerves that run externally above the eyebrow (supraorbital and supratentorial) or behind the head (occipital), to see whether those could be related to the pain."
While, nerve stimulation for headaches is still experimental, Dr. Amin is among a handful of doctors working to determine that how well it works for different kinds of head pain, especially those with nerve-caused head or facial pain.
Dr. Amin stressed that this procedure is not intended for patients who have headaches for just a few months. Instead, it is for those with chronic headache spanning several years and who haven't responded to conventional treatments.
He said, "We don't anticipate 100-percent improvement, but 60 percent to 70 percent in their overall pain and day-to-day activities is what we're looking for.

Then Dr. Sandeep Amin tried a last-ditch experiment.He hooked a tiny electrode to a needle and tunneled it under the skin by Lamesch's left eye, stopping atop the nerve responsible for her pain.Powered by a battery implanted near her collarbone, the device continually zaps that nerve with electric pulses - blocking the Illinois woman's pain.
"The minute he put it in, the pain was gone," a grateful Lamesch says.
An estimated 20 million Americans suffer severe headaches, and as many as 10 percent of them have intractable head or facial pain.Treatment after treatment fails.Some are true migraines, which stem from inside the brain, but others - mistakenly called migraines - result from damaged nerves along the face or scalp.
