At Oklahoma CyberKnife, we understand the challenges this chronic pain condition brings. Our CyberKnife treatment aims to effectively manage your TN pain with just one treatment to help you reclaim your quality of life.

Understanding Trigeminal Neuralgia

Trigeminal Neuralgia affects approximately 12 in every 100,000 people annually, with individuals over the age of 50 being at higher risk, though it can occur at any age. Living with TN can cause many disruptions due to the excruciating pain associated with this condition. This pain is usually sudden, sharp, stabbing, or electric shock-like, typically affecting one side of the face, including the jaw, cheek, forehead, and around the eye.

The exact cause of TN is unknown but is often attributed to a blood vessel’s compression of the trigeminal nerve. However, other factors like multiple sclerosis or tumors can also play a role. 

The excruciating pain caused by TN can lead to emotional distress and despair due to its impact on quality of life, daily functioning, and routine activities. In severe cases, this unrelenting pain can lead to depression, anxiety, and thoughts of suicide, which is why Trigeminal Neuralgia is commonly referred to as “Suicide Disease”.

Treating Trigeminal Neuralgia with the CyberKnife

Trigeminal Neuralgia (TN) can be a debilitating condition. If you’re looking for pain relief options, the CyberKnife offers a targeted and minimally invasive approach often with just one treatment session.

The CyberKnife utilizes stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) to deliver high-dose radiation beams with pinpoint accuracy. This targets the specific portion of the trigeminal nerve responsible for pain signals, reducing its sensitivity.

Unlike surgery, the CyberKnife requires no incisions. Its robotic system tracks your movements in real-time, ensuring precise treatment while minimizing radiation exposure to healthy surrounding tissues.

  • Minimally Invasive: No scalpels or incisions needed.
