Surgical procedures and radiotherapy are rarely done or needed for cluster headache, even the chronic form. The various procedures have not been compared and are difficult to evaluate. Among the procedures are glycerol injection into the cistern of the trigeminal ganglion, microvascular decompression of the trigeminal nerve, and so-called gamma-knife radiotherapy of the trigeminal ganglion. The only patient of mine who had one of these procedures had a glycerol injection twice without it having an effect on his headaches. For a review of such non-medicinal therapies see Dodick et al. (2000).
