Ramesh Shigihalli, a patient from a village near Bailhongal suffering from unbearable pain for the last five years, had visited multiple hospitals and clinics but failed to find any precise diagnosis. However, after learning about the Kerur Pain Clinic and Dr Ravi Kerur, he decided to visit the clinic to relieve his agony. Dr Kerur identified the condition as Trigeminal Neuralgia and suggested Radiofrequency Ablation as a solution.


Trigeminal Neuralgia is a chronic condition that affects the trigeminal nerve, causing intense facial pain. It is a rare condition often misdiagnosed or undiagnosed, leading to patients suffering from excruciating pain without relief. Ramesh faced the same challenges, where multiple visits to hospitals and clinics could not provide him with a precise diagnosis or solution to his condition. As a result, he could not sleep or eat anything properly.


Trigeminal Neuralgia causes intense and sharp pain in the face, primarily on one side. The pain can be triggered by simple activities such as brushing teeth, talking, or eating. Patients often describe the pain as an electric shock, burning sensation, or stabbing pain, lasting for a few seconds to a few minutes. Unfortunately, the pain can be so severe that patients often avoid activities that may trigger it, leading to a compromised quality of life.


Dr Ravi Kerur diagnosed Ramesh's condition as Trigeminal Neuralgia and suggested Radiofrequency Ablation as a solution. Radiofrequency Ablation is a minimally invasive procedure that uses heat to destroy the nerves responsible for the pain signals. The process is performed under local anaesthesia, and patients can resume regular activities within a few hours of the treatment.


After undergoing Radiofrequency Ablation, Ramesh experienced a significant reduction in his pain. The procedure helped him regain his everyday life and perform daily activities without any fear of triggering the pain. With regular follow-ups and medications, Ramesh could maintain his pain-free life and return to his routine without any limitations.


Trigeminal Neuralgia is a rare condition that can severely impact a patient's quality of life. However, early diagnosis and appropriate treatment can help patients relieve their agony and regain their everyday life. Radiofrequency Ablation is an effective solution to alleviate pain for patients suffering from Trigeminal Neuralgia. Dr Ravi Kerur and the Kerur Pain Clinic have proven reliable options for patients seeking effective pain management solutions.
