When you or a loved one is experiencing sharp nerve pain, it is important to see an experienced nerve specialist to carefully determine the cause of the pain. At Advanced Neurosurgery Associates, our skilled team is able to expertly diagnose and treat nerve disorders, including trigeminal neuralgia.
Trigeminal Neuralgia, also known as tic doloureux, is a nerve disorder characterized by a sharp, piercing pain on one side of the face. The disorder affects the trigeminal nerve and often patients may be forced to not wash a portion of their face, or shave an area out of fear of triggering the pain. This discomfort can be severe and does not respond well to typical prescription pain medications. Many times, patients attribute the discomfort to a dental disorder with treatment to try to relieve the pain.
For debilitating nerve conditions such as Trigeminal Neuralgia, our team of nerve specialists at Advanced Neurosurgery Associates are able to treat all types of nerve disorders to reduce your pain. For more information about nerve care, contact our neurosurgical specialists at 678-312-2700.
