Trigeminal neuralgia is typically treated with medications and, in some cases, surgical interventions like microvascular decompression. Gamma knife radiosurgery may be considered to relieve nerve compression.

Trigeminal Neuralgia is a chronic pain condition characterised by sudden, severe, and stabbing facial pain along the Trigeminal nerve distribution, often triggered by everyday activities such as eating or talking.

The treatment process for Trigeminal Neuralgia typically involves medication trials with anticonvulsants or muscle relaxants, followed by interventional procedures such as nerve blocks or surgical options like microvascular decompression for cases resistant to conservative treatments, with regular follow-up to monitor response and adjust treatment strategies as needed.
