: Greetings: I am trying to assist a Latin Ameirican patient with right trigeminal neuroma. Two prior surgeries has not solved all the problem. This apparently is a complex case. What is your experience with this? It has been suggested that Dr. Madjid in Hannover Germany is a world expert on this surgery. Any thoughts on this or best place in world to receive treatment? Many thanks!!!
I am unsure if you are referring to fifth nerve neuroma (i.e. tumor/neoplasm) or to trigeminal neuralgia in your question. I would suggest Peter Janetta at the University of Pittsburgh for trigeminal NEURALGIA surgery (microvascular decompression. I have no advice I can give you on neuroma resection as this is an uncommon tumor; Baptist hospital in Memphis TN is well known for acoustic neuroma resection surgery.
