Free Seminar on Trigeminal Neuralgia: ‘The Many Faces of Pain’

If you have chronic extreme, sudden burning or shock-like pain that affects your face — or know someone who has — you’ll want to attend a free seminar, “The Many Faces of Pain” Tuesday, November 3, at The Valley Hospital Conference Center. Anthony D’Ambrosio, M.D., Co-Director, The Gamma Knife Center, will discuss causes, diagnosis and treatment of trigeminal neuralgia.

Trigeminal neuralgia affects the largest nerve in the head, which carries sensations from the face to the brain. It can include symptoms of extreme stabbing pain that typically affects one side of the face, usually in people over age 50, especially women.

Dr. D’Ambrosio will outline the latest treatment options available, including the gamma knife technology, to relieve nerve pressure and pain. Join us Tuesday, November 3 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at The Valley Hospital Conference Center, 223 North Van Dien Ave., Ridgewood. Register today to reserve your seat for this free seminar.

The Valley Hospital is accredited by the Medical Society of New Jersey to provide continuing medical education for physicians. The Valley Hospital designates this live activity for a maximum of 1 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
