It is time for another Healthy Living with USA Health. Dr. Jai Thakur joined Joe and Chelsey on Studio10 to speak on keyhole surgeries for facial pain and facial spasms. Facial spasms/trigeminal neuralgia are extremely common in our community and Dr. Thakur is the only neurosurgeon in the area who can treat them with a minimally invasive keyhole surgical option.

Dr. Thakur answers the following questions in the clip above:

Q1. What is Trigeminal Neuralgia and Hemifacial Spasms?

Q2. Are there some non-surgical options to these problems?

Q3. You specialize in keyhole surgeries for facial pain and spasms. Can you walk us through the surgery and what to expect?

Q4. What does the recovery look like after the surgery?
