Taking place in August 2017, Neurosurgeon Awareness Month focuses on trigeminal neuralgia.

In the essay, "Neurosurgeons and Trigeminal Neuralgia", Joshua M. Rosenow, MD, FAANS, describes a history of the condition and its treatment.

"Neurosurgeons remain committed to providing the highest level of compassionate and timely care for patients suffering from facial pain. This month, we look forward to highlighting the role of neurosurgeons in fighting this disabling disorder. We will continue working diligently to bring new technology and scientific discoveries to patients in the hope of relieving them of this burden."
