The best insight on the benefits of CyberKnife® treatment often comes from patients who have undergone the procedure. Our former patient, Joel R. was treated at our center for trigeminal neuralgia, a rare and debilitating nerve disorder characterized by excruciating facial pain. Read about his treatment experience below.
“Before receiving treatment for trigeminal neuralgia, I would spend hours a day in bed and take 10 or 15 pain pills a day.”
Often mistaken for a dental problem, trigeminal neuralgia can be tough to diagnose. Joel visited six different specialists before finally receiving his diagnosis. Joel was successfully treated at Reno CyberKnife and is now pain-free.
“There was no better treatment option than CyberKnife. The Reno CyberKnife team is such a nice staff. I felt like I was visiting friends, not going to a hospital. Anybody can be treated for any ailment at any hospital, but I traveled specifically to Reno CyberKnife because the staff was so amazing.”
