Nik Patel - neuro surgeon

Hi 

My daughter has chronic cluster headaches - diagnosed by Nicola Giffin. She’s received several nerve blocks over the last 18 months and is now going to have a procedure performed by the neuro surgeon Nik Patel - it’s not the permanent occipital stimulator but he’s going to insert 3 probes - 2 into the back of her neck and 1 in her cheek which will then have high radio frequency through them to make more space for the nerves to pass through the muscles. Has anyone else had this treatment and if so what was your experience ?
