Trigeminal Neuralgia Support Group

Led by:
Various Speakers

For those who suffer from trigeminal neuralgia, you are not alone! Please join us to our bi-monthly meeting at Stanford to learn about the new treatment options and to share your experience with others going through similar situations.

If you have been diagnosed with trigeminal neuralgia and have questions or wish to explore treatment options and coping strategies with other patients and clinical experts, please join us for upcoming Stanford Trigeminal Neuralgia Support Group meetings.

The meetings are free of charge and are a great resource for patient and family education. The meetings consist of 20 minutes speaker presentation, 20 minutes patients' presentations of their own experiences, and open forum for discussion. Also, leading Stanford Neurosurgeon, Steven D. Chang, MD, will join for a Q&A session at the end of each meeting.
