TRIGEMINAL NEURALGIA

Trigeminal neuralgia is a very difficult condition to endure, characterized by extremely painful attacks, and affects one person in 25.000 every year, almost always over the age of 50. Selective trigeminal neurolysis with fluoroscopy practiced at the Ugo Delfino Medical Studio is a safe and effective procedure for treating its symptoms.

OUR ADVANTAGES
EFFECTIVE, NON-OPERATIVE TREATMENT


QUICK
Within 24 hours of admission to the clinic, the patient is discharged


Non invasive
It does not require any incisions in the skin


Safe
Through the use of radiological instrumentation (targeted fluoroscopy)

A 24-hour admission is enough to complete the surgery and eliminate the pain caused by the trigeminal nerve inflammation with the utmost safety.
