Dr. Loyola performed the surgical procedure microvascular decompression craniotomy (brain surgery) on me June 14, 2013 at Presbyterian Plano. He assured me he would take care of me with minimal scarring from the surgery. Unless I tell you, you would never know I had brain surgery. I have not had any pain from my disease trigeminal neuralgia since my surgery. Dr. Loyola and his staff was awesome to me!!!!!
