Trigeminal Neuralgia is an uncommon condition associated with agonizing face pain that makes it difficult to talk or eat. Additional extreme discomfort may be associated with the fear that such pain may recur, often at unpredictable moments. Much can be done to help patients who suffer from Trigeminal Neuralgia. The best over-all medical care for patients with Trigeminal Neuralgia requires expertise in diagnosis, imaging (MRI scan), treatment with medicines and neurosurgical operations: Gamma Knife radiosurgery (GKRS), needle rhizotomies (radiofrequency electrocoagulation [RFE], glycerol and balloon micro-compression) and microvascular decompression (MVD).
