Gamma Knife Perfexion
GAMMA KNIFE PERFEXION for the Treatment of Brain Tumors
Gamma Knife is superior to other techniques because:
- It is more precise
Its technological features give it a precision of 0.3 mm.
- It is more effective
Its efficacy has been proven through thousands of published scientific articles.
- Scientific studies confirm that it obtains the best result without harming the patient.
To date, almost 3,000 medical journal articles have been published about Gamma Knife.
- It is used in a large number of centers.
Gamma Knife is currently being used in about 300 centers around the world.
- It has proven itself since 1968.
It is a radiosurgical technique that has been widely used for a long time.
Other techniques report their efficacy by comparing themselves with Gamma Knife. Gamma Knife is viewed as the gold standard of radiosurgery.
THE GAMMA KNIFE DIFFERENCE IN TREATMENT OF BRAIN TUMORS
The advanced technology Gamma Knife procedure makes it possible to treat brain tumors in a bloodless and painless fashion without open surgery so that the patient can return home the same day.
The term radiosurgery was introduced to the world of medicine by the Swiss brain surgeon Lars Leksell and refers to the process of directing numerous low-energy radioactive beams that do not damage brain tissue to the diseased area within the skull and alter this tissue by focusing on the diseased point and releasing a strong dose of radiation only at this point.
What is Gamma Knife?
Gamma Knife, a radiosurgery technique, was first used in 1968. In the beginning, it was employed in very few centers around the world, but as its therapeutic benefits were confirmed, its sphere of use widened. Today, Gamma Knife is being used in about 300 centers around the world. According to statistics from 2012, approximately 600,000 patients with a variety of brain diseases have been treated with Gamma Knife. There is no other device in this field that can approach the precision of Gamma Knife and has helped this many people.
Gamma Knife Perfexion, the new state-of-the-art model from Gamma Knife, which is characterized as the gold standard in Radiosurgery, shortens the treatment process for brain tumors painlessly and without open surgery, offering the patient convenience and comfort. Its advanced computer program helps specialists in treatment planning.
