Good day;
Initially, attempt non surgical treatment for Trigeminal Neuralgia.
Consult with medical specialists-in pain management and neurology. NYC teaching hospitals have medical study clubs to improve disease specific treatment and possible clinical trials to minimize symptoms of tic douloureax. Hope I've helped!!

Seek a neurologist or neurosurgeon's opinion as surgery in commonly done if the Trigeminal neuralgia does not respond well to the medications.
Surgery can control this problem in many cases.

In some cases, yes there can be a surgical or 'chemical' fix.
See your neurologist or ENT surgeon to outline this as a possibility, based on your symptoms and test results.
