Patient Workshop On Trigeminal Neuralgia Scheduled

LOS ANGELES (December 28, 1998) -- A free patient workshop for individuals who suffer from trigeminal neuralgia (severe facial pain) will be held Saturday, Jan. 23, 1999, at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. The workshop will be held from 9 a.m.-12:30 p.m. in the Harvey Morse Auditorium, 8700 Beverly Blvd., Los Angeles. Trigeminal neuralgia, a disabling disorder of the fifth cranial (trigeminal) nerve, affects thousands of people worldwide and is universally considered to be the most painful affliction known to adult men and women.

The Jan. 23 presentation is hosted by the Medical Center's Skull Base Institute and will include the latest in treatment options and symptom management, as well as a question-and-answer session. Led by Hrayr Shahinian, M.D., Director of the Skull Base Institute, the workshop will also include presentations by four other medical experts from Cedars-Sinai, UCLA Medical Center, and the San Diego Gamma Knife Center. Also participating in the workshop will be Terah Biszanta, West Coast Coordinator of the Trigeminal Neuralgia Association.

Victor Rosenfeld, M.D., an attending neurologist at Cedars-Sinai, will address medical management of this disorder. Robert Merrill, DDS, Clinical Director of the Oral-Facial Pain Clinic at UCLA Medical Center, will provide an overview of pain management options, and Kenneth Ott, M.D., neurosurgeon and medical director of the San Diego Gamma Knife Center will present information on the latest advances in Gamma Knife Radio-surgery.
