Trigeminal Neuralgia involves the facial nerve called the trigeminal nerve. This nerve carries pain, feeling and other sensations from the brain to the skin of the face. The eye can also be affected when feeling sensations from the trigeminal nerve.
The parts of the face affected with pain from Trigeminal Neuralgia can be just a small area, the surface of the eye or the entire face. The pain occurs usually on one side of the face, around the eye, cheek, and the lower part of the face.
Causes of trigeminal neuralgia:
At SFRO we offer the CyberKnife for treatment of Trigeminal Neuralgia.
The completely noninvasive nature of the CyberKnife System enables the treatment of intracranial targets, which provides a safe, painless and non-claustrophobic experience, within a very short treatment session. Patients who have had treatment for Trigeminal Neuralgia report a difference in the pain level as soon as the treatment is finished.
The CyberKnife System:
It's sub-milimeter accuracy is a crucial factor when treating spinal tumors, due to the ability for the CyberKnife to pinpoint a very small area
for treatment.The sparing of healthy tissue in areas surrounding the spine is vitally important. The goal is to kill the cancer cells so they don't spread further into
other areas of the body.
