Saint Luke's Offers Facial Pain Sufferers Multimodal Treatment

Comprehensive Diagnostic Approach Critical To Treating And Resolving Facial Pain

KANSAS CITY, Mo., March 22, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- For people suffering from facial pain life can feel like a nightmare. Many struggle for years searching for answers, seeking treatment from multiple specialists, and finding little relief. The causes and types of facial pain are complex, and finding a specialist who can properly identify the specific type of facial pain, determine the best course of treatment for it, and has the proper training for that treatment can be difficult.

Stephen E. Griffith, M.D., at Saint Luke's Neuroscience Institute in Kansas City, is a fellowship-trained neurosurgeon specializing in facial pain treatment, and he offers facial pain patients a comprehensive diagnostic approach followed by a multimodal treatment plan.

"In order to identify the proper facial pain treatment for a patient you must carefully listen to the patient and arrive at a proper diagnosis," said Dr. Griffith. "I ask patients a series of very targeted questions to pinpoint their exact type of facial pain and then am able to identify which treatment or combination of treatments will work best for them."

The most common treatments for facial pain are as follows:
  • Microvascular decompression
  • Radiofrequency gangliolysis
  • Internal neurolysis
  • Supraorbital or infraorbital nerve stimulation

While many physicians are able to only perform one of these techniques, Dr. Griffith is trained to perform all four thus enabling him to determine which intervention is most appropriate for each patient. Dr. Griffith also possesses the ability to use neuro-imaging to 3-dimensionally reconstruct the anatomy of the cranial nerve and arterial anatomy, placing him, and Saint Luke's Neuroscience Institute, in an elite territory for the comprehensive evaluation and surgical treatment of facial pain
