Why use Botox?

Although it might seem a bit odd, Botox is very useful in the work-up to determine whether surgery will be successful. Many of the nerves which can cause headaches are compressed by muscles. Since Botox works by relaxing muscles, it may produce results similar to what may be experienced with surgery. However, these injections must be performed in a very specific way, by someone with a thorough understanding of the anatomy which is being addressed. As a plastic surgeon, Dr. Peled had injected Botox hundreds of times for cosmetic reasons. As a peripheral nerve surgeon, he has similarly injected Botox numerous times, often successfully as a prelude to surgical decompression. Furthermore, as a peripheral nerve surgeon, he has an intimate understanding of the anatomy of the peripheral nerves within the head and neck.
