Trigeminal Neuralgia, a condition characterized by severe facial pain, can be managed effectively through innovative procedures like the Peripheral Nerve Stimulator available at ASCPM. This treatment offers a specialized approach to alleviating the intense discomfort associated with Trigeminal Neuralgia by employing gentle electrical signals directed at specific nerves.

How It Works

The Peripheral Nerve Stimulator functions by delivering mild electrical impulses to targeted nerves responsible for transmitting pain signals. Through precise electrode placement, it interrupts the abnormal pain signals typical of Trigeminal Neuralgia. These electrical impulses help regulate pain perception, providing relief to individuals experiencing debilitating facial pain.

The Benefits

Utilizing the Peripheral Nerve Stimulator for Trigeminal Neuralgia offers several advantages. Firstly, it provides a non-invasive alternative to conventional surgical methods, reducing associated risks. Additionally, this approach delivers targeted pain relief, improving overall quality of life and functionality. Furthermore, the gentle nature of the electrical impulses minimizes discomfort during treatment, enhancing patient comfort and satisfaction.

Procedure Details

During the procedure, patients are carefully positioned to ensure optimal electrode placement. Following the administration of local anesthesia to numb the area, the physician inserts the electrodes near the affected nerves. Once positioned correctly, the device is activated to deliver controlled electrical impulses. Patients may experience a tingling sensation, but the procedure is generally well-tolerated. After treatment, patients are monitored for any immediate side effects before being discharged. Regular follow-up appointments are scheduled to assess treatment effectiveness and make any necessary adjustments to optimize pain relief.
