Gamma Knife at the Forefront of Medical Technology

The Miami Neuroscience Center at Larkin recently hosted an Open House where South Florida Dentists and Oral Surgeons had the opportunity to tour the new state of the art facility and learn more about how Gamma Knife has proven to be safe and highly effective for the treatment of Trigeminal Neuralgia, a condition characterized by excruciating facial pain.

The Miami Neuroscience Center at Larkin, led by Dr. Aizik L. Wolf has offered Gamma Knife surgery for nearly 20 years and is one of the most experienced Gamma Knife teams in the nation.

Dr. Wolf’s use of Gamma Knife Radiosurgery for the treatment of Trigeminal Neuralgia has caused a stir in the medical community. Gamma Knife can be used to successfully treat Trigeminal Neuralgia without the need for surgical incisions that may result in further complications. A single, out- patient, non-invasive Gamma Knife procedure has resulted in excellent pain control in approximately 85 to 90 percent of Trigeminal Neuralgia patients. The procedure is a suitable alternative to oral medication therapy and compares favorably to other Trigeminal Neuralgia treatments.
