It's a treatment for Trigeminal Neuralgia.
Percutaneous Glycerol Rhizotomy involves a needle inserted into the area of the nerve followed by injection of glycerol to ablate the nerve. The patient has to remain seated for two hours after injection for full effect. This also has an 80-90% success rate with an occasional loss of facial sensation afterwards. However, recurrence rates are high - up to sixty percent.
Check out all the risks before trying this treatment.
Type Percutaneous Glycerol Rhizotomy into your Google and see what you get.
