Billie Jean (BJ) Caperelli of Doylestown, Pa., suffered for more than 10 years, with many unsuccessful attempts to get rid of the pain. It wasn’t until she came to Penn Medicine to receive a specialized surgery that she got relief.

Dr. Lee performed the intricate skull-base surgery using an endoscope that is only one tenth of an inch wide, accessing the base of the trigeminal nerve via a one centimeter opening behind Caperelli’s ear.
Caperelli has been pain-free since the surgery, and is hoping for very long-lasting relief. She is grateful to have found Dr. Lee and his team.
