March 11, 2014 03:59 PM

Trigeminal Neuralgia, or TM, is a debilitating disease that affects 150,000 people a year.  Gamma Knife® surgery is recognized as the preferred treatment for brain tumors, arteriovenous malformations and brain dysfunctions such as trigeminal neuralgia. Kevin Yao, MD describes how procedures using the Gamma Knife at the The John Theurer Cancer Center at HackensackUMC are performed.
Gamma Knife radiosurgical treatment offers non-invasive brain surgery to treat conditions that previously were considered inaccessible or inoperable and give patients the ability to return home the same day as surgery.
