CyberKnife for Trigeminal Neuralgia

Trigeminal neuralgia (TN), sometimes referred to as Tic Douloureux, is a nerve disorder that can cause intense pain on either side of the face. The pain can be triggered when cold air touches specific facial areas or with movements like chewing, talking, smiling or swallowing. The disorder occurs in the trigeminal, or fifth cranial nerve, that controls sensation in the face. The nerve becomes irritable and painful. TN is more common in women and patients are typically middle-aged or seniors. The unpredictable, severe pain from TN makes it emotionally incapacitating and can significantly impact one's quality of life.

CyberKnife to Treat Trigeminal Neuralgia?

The treatment for trigeminal neuralgia depends on age, other medical problems and risk factors.
Medications is often the first line treatment. If medication does not work, Cyberknife is often considered.

CyberKnife delivers beams of high dose radiation with pinpoint accuracy to the trigeminal nerve roots alleviating the pain and suffering.
