Microvascular Decompression

Microvascular decompression is used to alleviate pressure on the trigeminal nerve root, nerves of the face and head. The surgery is done through an incision behind the ear. Microinstruments are used to move offending vessels away from the trigeminal nerve root. Microvascular decompression is used to treat trigeminal neuralgia. Trigeminal neuralgia is a nerve disorder that causes a stabbing or electric shock-like pain in parts of the face.
