How is glossopharyngeal neuralgia treated?

Dr. Sekula provides expert care for individuals affected by glossopharyngeal neuralgia. Several potential treatments exist for those with trigeminal neuralgia: microvascular decompression surgery, which involves moving a blood vessel and inserting a felt cushion between it and the glossopharyngeal and vagus nerves through a small incision behind the ear. In specific cases, an ablative procedure might be recommended to interrupt the glossopharyngeal nerve, halting pain transmissions.

Dr. Sekula is a very skilled neurosurgeon. His bedside manners were awesome. He performed Glossopharyngeal neuralgia surgery on me in Dec 2017. The surgery didn't work. I feel as though he forgot about me. He is a busy Dr & I get that but to leave a patient in this kind of pain is just wrong. I have no idea who or where to turn to now. All I can do now is pray for God to take this pain away & put this behind me. I am not mad at Dr. Sekula, just dissappointed. I would still recommend him to others b/c he is a very skilled Dr. Racquel Goad

In 2018 I was diagnosed with glossopharyngeal neuralgia which was treated with prescription medication until they became ineffective after three years. Extensive research led me to Dr. Raymond Sekula and within ten days an appointment for micro vascular decompression surgery. The surgery was a complete success. Dr. Sekula is an amazing surgeon, very compassionate, and I feel went out of his way to accommodate my need for surgery. I feel he probably saved my life. He and his office staff were outstanding.
