Gamma knife surgery which had been proven safe and effective, is offering new hope to patients suffering from nervous system diseases across the globe. With its non invasive surgical procedure, Gamma Knife provides patients with a better alternative in treating tumors, vascular deformation, trigeminal neuralgia, Parkinson’s Disease, Alzheimer’s Disease and other conditions of the brain that were once require an open brain surgery.
Presently Asian Medical Tourism together with Philippine Gamma Knife Center had made Gamma Knife surgery available to Filipinos. Philippine Gamma Knife Center has state of the art facility and equipments needed to perform the said surgery. The Center uses computerized data from imaging tests, such as CT scans, MRIs or arteriograms to pinpoint problem areas in the brain. As a result, Philippine Gamma Knife Center destroys the cancer cells using multiple beams of gamma radiation with unparallel precision.
With its sub-millimeter accuracy Gamma Knife Surgery reduces the risk of damaging surrounding normal tissues and minimizes the brain’s exposure to the radiation. Gamma Knife surgery is recognized worldwide as the preferred treatment for brain tumors, arteriovenous malformations and brain dysfunctions such as trigeminal neuralgia. It is supported by over 2,500 medically reviewed research articles that are primarily published in neurosurgery journals.
This fact coupled with published reports indicated that the Gamma Knife can be used as an alternative to adjunctive therapy in the treatment of residual or recurrent lesions that were not removed by conventional brain tumor surgery. Gamma Knife surgery can be especially useful for those patients who are not suitable for standard surgical techniques due to illness or advanced age. In many neurosurgical cases, Gamma Knife is the only feasible treatment.
