Trigeminal Neuralgia

Trigeminal neuralgia is a terrible condition for some patients. Neurosurgeons can help

Dr Olson has studied the 200 microvascular decompressions for trigeminal neuralgia done at Princess Alexandra Hospital and found that 90% had an excellent outcome and were able to come off medication. 70% were still pain free at 10 years.

Dr Olson has pioneered a computed based navigation system to obtain maximal accuracy for percutaneous techniques.

As a member of the gamma knife clinical delivery team she is involved in gamma knife treatment for trigeminal neuralgia.
