Gamma Knife Exira Center Katowice
About the hospital
Gamma Knife Exira Center Katowice was opened in 2013 by the private network Voxel SA Capital Group in Poland. Innovative non-invasive cancer treatment methods allowed the hospital to gain popularity among the local population and outside the country.
The clinic uses modern technologies thanks to highly experienced doctors trained in leading special centers in the USA and France. Before each treatment, the patient is individually examined to determine the most accurate therapy, in particular, the Signa Voyager 1.5 Tesla MRI.
The main direction of the medical center is the treatment of brain tumors. Thanks to Lеkѕеll Gаmmа Knіfе Perfexion of the Swedish company Elekta, oncologists have the opportunity to specifically affect the tumor with an accuracy of 0.15 mm through special collimators. Treatment of tumors is possible even in cases of the deep location of the impression. Due to the absence of incisions, the need for general anesthesia disappears. Local anesthesia in the places where the frame is attached is performed by qualified anesthesiologists who accompany the person during the entire treatment. The course of treatment consists of 1 procedure and, thanks to the robotic system, has minimal complications. The device's work concentrates on the place of impression and the scattered rays upon entering the human body. This approach makes it possible to obtain a minimal impression of the surrounding tissues and to concentrate the high intensity of the impression precisely in malignant tumors. A clear separation of healthy and affected tissues allows for preserving functions, which is especially important for the brain. Environmental friendliness and safety of the device itself is a significant advantage and allow it not to endanger medical personnel and patients in the hospital.
Gamma Knife Exira Сlinic in Katowice offers neurology and oncology treatment for neuroblastoma, neuralgia, and brain malignancies (hypothalamic hamartoma, IV ventricular subependymoma, paraganglioma, and meningioma). Patient orientation and great attention to detail are integral to the treatment of each case.
