Multimodal treatment in chronic pain at the San Raffaele Hospital with our VRRS system

The Miller Institute - School of Specialization in Cognitive Behavioral Psychotherapy presents the news for the recovery of patients in the neurological area at the San Raffaele Hospital in Milan, including our VRRS system used for facial neuralgia.

Pain can start from various parts of the face and follows the course of the nerve.
