About the offer

Gamma Knife is a non-invasive radiosurgery technique used to treat spinal tumors that offer high precision, minimizes damage to the surrounding healthy spinal cord, and has fewer side effects than traditional open surgery. Before the Gamma Knife treatment, the standard evaluation is performed with a consultation with a radiation oncologist. Laboratory tests are conducted to assess treatment suitability. An MRI scan of the spine is performed to identify the tumor's location, size, and shape. Then the patient is prepared for the Gamma Knife radiosurgery, and a 3D radiation plan is created. Multiple radiation beams target the abnormal cells precisely while protecting the nearby tissue during the procedure. The Gamma Knife treatment is painless and requires no anesthesia. After the procedure, the patient receives appropriate care and symptomatic treatments to manage discomfort. Gamma Knife can be applied to treat hard-to-reach or inoperable tumors. Sometimes, it is combined with chemotherapy to enhance the overall effectiveness. It is the treatment with reduced risk of infection and faster recovery, preservation of healthy tissues due to pinpoint accuracy, and a customized treatment plan based on the patient's unique anatomy and tumor characteristics. In addition, the therapy allows patients to return home the same day and quickly resume their daily activities.
