Richard’s Story

It shouldn’t be painful to smile. But that’s exactly what Richard experienced with trigeminal neuralgia. For years, he lived with sudden bursts of intermittent pain. When he decided to use medications to treat his condition, things worsened significantly. The pain intensified, and Richard was bed-ridden for five weeks. Everything changed when a friend connected Richard to a local neurosurgeon familiar with CyberKnife® Robotic Radiosurgery treatments. Richard struggled to even make it the first therapy. But he left pain-free. Watch the video to learn Richard’s story and see how happy he is to have his quality of life back.
