TX360–A New Approach for Chronic Migraines and More

If you suffer with chronic migraines, you know the relief that comes when medication kicks in. But that relief is often paired with unwelcome side effects, including drowsiness and the inability to go about your normal tasks.
That’s why we’re excited to introduce a new procedure for patients chronic migraine, headache, and trigeminal neuralgia (TN) sufferers called “TX360.”

How TX360 is performed:

The TX360 is a nasal applicator that has a retractable “spaghetti noodle” (soft and flexible syringe) to spray the sphenopaletine ganglion with bupivicaine.

The TX360 procedure is very benign and offers a vast improvement for those suffering from chronic migraines or other headaches. Many patients have reported this “feels like a saline spray” or “like ocean water going up your nose.”
This procedure was developed by Dr. Tian Xia and has proven very effective in all studies conducted.
Check out this short video that shows the procedure for TX360.
