Stereotactic Radiosurgery Treatment

The stereotactic radiosurgery treatment for trigeminal neuralgia type 1 is a single treatment, so the patient gets the treatment typically in 60 minutes to 90 minutes and that is it. They are done. You can drive into the clinic, get your treatment, drive back home, enjoy dinner and wine if you want. It's not an ongoing treatment, but rather a single treatment.
