Dr. Smith is committed to helping migraine sufferers find relief from pain.

Dr. Kevin Smith

Dr. Kevin Smith is board certified by the American Board of Otolaryngology and the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery as an ear, nose and throat specialist (ENT) and a facial plastic surgeon. It was while he was residing in the Facial Plastic Surgery Fellowship at the McCullough Plastic Surgery Clinic that he discovered the beginnings of what would become the SMITH Migraine Technique.

His preceptor, one of the nation’s foremost facial plastic surgery pioneers, commented that every so often a rhinoplasty patient who also required a septoplasty procedure would mention that after the surgery they no longer suffered from migraines or headaches. This launched Dr. Smith’s curiosity into the scientific correlation between migraine headaches and the nose.

Early in his career as a surgeon, he recognized an association between deviated septums and migraines. Since first discovering this correlation, Dr. Smith began observing and researching this correlation, and ultimately developed the SMITH Migraine Technique. Using this highly specialized technique, he has treated over 2,000 patients and has achieved an 88% success rate.

Over the course of time that Dr. Smith developed his technique, helping migraine sufferers became his passion. His goal is to cure migraines globally.

As part of this goal, Dr. Smith wants to change the way we view migraines. Currently, they are viewed as a neurological problem, but he believes they should be seen as treatable. Dr. Smith wants to bring awareness to this unknown cause of migraines to cure people who otherwise feel hopeless.

Through the SMITH Migraine Technique, Dr. Smith has been able to successfully cure all the different types of migraines including, but not limited to, cluster, hormonal, tension and seasonal.

Patients travel from all over the country to see Dr. Smith and to find relief.  If you are outside the Houston area, see the Out-of-Town Patients page.
