Sarcoma

Radiation therapy is combined with surgery, either in the pre-operative or the post-operative setting, in the definitive treatment of sarcomas. Our group has experience with not only external radiation therapy but also brachytherapy. Sometimes a pre-operative radiation consultation is desirable in difficult cases, and our physicians would be happy to see any sarcoma patient.  Trigeminal Neuralgia  Trigeminal neuralgia is a neuropathic condition that results in severe episodes of electric or stabbing facial pain, which can be excruciating and very disabling. There are a number of treatment options including medicines, usually anticonvulsants, and several surgical options. Stereotactic radiosurgery is one of them. This involves treating the nerve, which conducts the abnormal pain signal with a single small, but high dose of radiation.  Your neurosurgeon can discuss all the treatment options with you. We will be happy to work with you and your neurosurgeon, should a decision be made to proceed with stereotactic radiosurgery.
