: 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.
