Saint Peter's Healthcare Video: Trigeminal Neuralgia

One of my great passions is the treatment of Trigeminal Neuralgia. I was fortunate to complete a surgical fellowship with Dr. Peter Jannetta; the physician who innovated Microvascular Decompression as a treatment for this debilitating condition. The procedure was life changing for sufferers and performing it remains one of the most personally rewarding parts of my neurosurgical practice..

Recently, I had the opportunity to record a video with the team at Saint Peter's Healthcare System where I discussed the Trigeminal Neuralgia. Saint Peter's did a great job with the video and they've granted me permission to reproduce it here. Hope you find it useful!
