Trigeminal Neuralgia

Trigeminal neuralgia is a chronic condition marked by a sudden and severe pain in the face or jaw. The pain typically comes in short attacks, often triggered by only mild facial contact, like shaving, brushing your teeth, or even applying makeup.  

Trigeminal neuralgia usually affects one side of the face, and attacks may come and go several times a day, with bouts lasting weeks or even months. 

Fortunately, there are effective treatment options for trigeminal neuralgia, including medications and surgery. Our team at St. Luke's will work with you to create a treatment plan specific to your needs.
