The method of minimal invasive procedure used in the cure of trigeminal neuralgia, glossopharyngeal neuralgia and headache with the help of heating current is called as percutaneous stereotactic treatment or percutaneous stereotactic rhizotomy treatment or PSR.
The major conditions treated using PSR or percutaneous stereotactic method is trigeminal neuralgia, glossopharyngeal neuralgia and cluster head ache. Trigeminal neuralgia is a pain felt along the course of branches of the trigeminal nerve. Trigeminal neuralgia symptoms begin with experiencing pain along one among the branches of nerve. The precipitating factors of pain in trigeminal neuralgia is the intake of cold food or water, talking, touching on certain parts and while walking. The trigeminal neuralgia is an idiopathic condition and seen associated with multiple sclerosis in young individuals. Glossopharyngeal neuralgia is the pain felt on the course of ninth cranial nerve mostly on one side of the throat. The glossopharyngeal neuralgia pain has a radiating nature towards ear and tonsil. The cluster head ache is the pain felt behind the eyes with a 4-12 times recurrence in a week. The cluster head ache is observed normally on one side of the head.
The procedure of percutaneous stereotactic treatment in India is performed by a group of neurosurgeons with the help of proper radiological support. The method helps in assuring relief from the condition of neuralgia by deactivating the area of the nerve causing the pain. The electrode inducer needle is inserted through the cheek to the nerve region and a heating current is passed on the area of pathology. The relief from pain is attained along with a mild numbness in that region due to inactive nerve area. The entire nerve is not destroyed during the procedure.
The neurology doctors and super specialty are the best in providing good quality treatment for all neurology related disorders. Best doctors in India and best specialty centers can be approached through the medical assistance service providers in India by using the information technology. The Percutaneous Stereotactic Treatment-PSR cost in India is also affordable compared to other countries.
