I had a wonderful follow-up visit with Dr. Sekula. He was able to spend time with me explaining more about my surgery and what made it unique. He has been a wonderful and supportive care provider.

I suffer from trigeminal neuralgia since 2012. I seen many surgeons, some in New York and CT which truly never gave me a straight forward answer about my condition. Unfortunately, I did not tolerated meds for it and I suffer w it for many years. Last year it aggravated to a point that life stop making sense. While searching for a surgeon I read a story of a young man on his page w a similar story of feeling no way out but Dr. Sekula change his life. I can say the same, the surgery he did took away the trigeminal pain. I am in disbelief of how I don’t have any pain whatsoever. Dr. Sekula changed my life. my family as myself have so much gratitude. I highly recommend Dr. Sekula to anyone who is suffering from trigeminal neuralgia. Now I can enjoy life to the fullest w the people I love.

Dr. Sekula did surgery on my wife and he was caring, understanding and came by before and after surgery which does not always happen. He is a wonderful surgeon and he is a compassionate doctor. We don’t know the results of the surgery yet, but he made my wife feel as if he will keep on trying until we get the issue corrected. Caroline is great and supports you every step of the way. I can’t speak highly enough about Dr. Sekula and his team.

I suffered from Trigeminal Neuralgia 8 years ago. Prior to diagnosis my dentist thought it was because I needed a root canal. 1 Root canal and tooth extraction later, it seemed to have gone, but then returned. I begin to see a neurologist and I was then treated with drugs. It seemed to mitigate, but I would get intense flare ups periodically. Life relocated us to Pittsburgh, where upon I did some research on the UPMC website. I was quickly pointed to Dr. Sekula and an appointment was made. Dr. Sekula met with me and quickly and recommended the vascular decompression. I was quickly set for surgery. The result was immediate. No flareups, or anything in the last 5 years. This was life changing surgery for me. Dr. Sekula has subsequently moved on to Columbia University and wish him the best. You could not be in better hands for this condition.

Hemifacial spasm is a neurological disorder causing involuntary contractions of one side of the face, often resulting from nerve compression.


A meningioma is a typically benign and slow-growing tumor arising from the membranes surrounding the brain and spinal cord.

These benign tumors affect the nerves connecting the inner ear to the brain, potentially causing hearing loss.

Chiari malformation is a structural defect in the base of the skull and cerebellum, which causes brain tissue to extend into the spinal canal.
