Although there are a number of treatments for trigeminal neuralgia (medication, rhizotomy - which is a procedure where we put a needle into the nerve, radiation, and surgery - those are a list of possible treatment options) there's only one treatment that offers an opportunity for a long-term cure and that is surgery. Surgery offers an opportunity to cure this disorder, but it is not a 100% cure rate. So we're looking at cure rates somewhere in that 60-70% range, which may not sound high, but it's remarkably higher than any of the other treatment options which either offer no opportunity for a cure or a much, much lower percentage cure rate.
