List of ONS Doctors--Updated

I have just updated the list of doctors that are known to use occipital nerve stimulators for headache treatment from names readers have submitted to me.  If you have any to add, please e-mail me.  And thank you everyone for helping me compile this list.  I've been told by several people that it has been a great resource for them.

This list can always be found on the righthand side of the blog for easy access (you may have to scroll down a bit to see it).  Also, as one reader suggested, you can try contacting your local university pain management center.  Most of them implant nerve stimulators for many indications, possibly including headaches. But in the meantime, here is the current list:
