Gamma Knife for Trigeminal Neuralgia

Trigeminal Neuralgia Scan

Why Gamma Knife for trigeminal neuralgia?

Gamma Knife is the single most effective non-invasive treatment option for trigeminal neuralgia that has become refractory to medications. Gamma Knife is also the safest non-medical treatment option for patients who are not good candidates for open surgery. Gamma Knife also has the highest durability of pain relief in patients who have trigeminal neuralgia related to multiple sclerosis.

Why the Wake Forest Baptist Health Gamma Knife team?

The Comprehensive Cancer Center at Wake Forest Baptist has one of the world’s most experienced radiosurgery teams, with more than 1,000 patients with trigeminal neuralgia treated in the past decade. We have a multidisciplinary team that can offer either surgical or radiosurgical options. Because trigeminal neuralgia is a relatively rare condition that can significantly affect patient quality of life, an experienced treatment team matters.
