Trigeminal neuralgia treatment steroids

The evidence for surgical therapy is poor. [32] Surgery is normally recommended only after medication has proved ineffective, or if side effects of medication are intolerable. [33] While there may be pain relief after surgery, there is also a considerable risk of side effects, such as facial numbness after the procedure. [32] Microvascular decompression appears to result in the longest pain relief. [32] [34] Percutaneous radiofrequency thermorhizotomy may also be effective [35] as may stereotactic radiosurgery ; however the effectiveness decreases with time. [36]

Princeton Brain & Spine surgeon  Mark R. McLaughlin, MD, FACS, FAANS trained with Peter Jannetta, ., the "father" of modern microvascular decompression surgery for trigeminal neuralgia, hemifacial spasm, glossopharyngeal neuralgia, and other cranial nerve rhizopathies. Dr. McLaughlin worked closely with Dr. Jannetta in the ongoing research, and was the lead author of the paper "Microvascular decompression of cranial nerves: lessons learned after 4400 operations" published in the Journal of Neurosurgery in January 1999.
