My momma

My mother recently had brain surgery on the 2nd of this month for her Trigeminal Neuralgia. She was taken great care of. She is expected to return home this Sunday. I didn't know whether this man would be good or not. But, my mother's recovery process and the care she was given during let me know that she was in great hands.

Simply the Best for MVD

I was in such extreme pain with TN when I saw Dr Linskey that I couldn't even talk without pain. He showed such compassion toward my situation, presented me with a complete list of options before we both decided on Micro Vascular Decompression (MVD) being the best course of action for my case. A great bedside manner, he is all there for you until your questions are answered. I'm so thankful Dr. Linskey was my neurosurgeon given the complexity of what my problem that involved 3 veins & 2 arteries wrapped around the nerve. Before surgery I was in pain, afterward - cured! If you are considering MVD, I strongly recommend trying to see Dr Linskey as he is probably one of the top few surgeons in the country capable of dealing with whatever complexities that are discovered in treating this disorder.
