I wanted to put this out there for anyone who might be having difficulties with the hemi-facial spasms or trigeminal neuralgia.  I saw a local neurosurgeon, Raymond Sekula (UPMC Hamot - Erie, PA), for an opinion on my treatment options for my AN.  I didn't have my surgery done by him because there isn't a local neurotologist that he works with.  He does, however, have a very good reputation for the conditions I listed.  There was an attorney in my office who was having hemi-facial spasms.  Dr. Sekula performed his surgery and he had a great outcome.  The website states that people come to him from around the world.  If you look around on the website, you can get information on scheduling a free consultation via Skype.

I hope this might help someone.
