Gamma Knife Cost In United Arab Emirates

Whatsapp Chat Chat

Gamma knife radiosurgery is the term coined for the type of radiation therapy which is used for the treatment of tumors, vascular malformation, and some other abnormalities in the brain.

It is advised in cases of deep brain seated tumors that are not operable and in case a patient's condition is not eligible for standard surgery.

It is another form of SRS ( stereotactic radiosurgery), it is not a surgery, and there is no incision; only radiation is given in a focused manner.

Gamma Knife radiosurgery uses specialized equipment to focus about 200 tiny radiation beams upon a tumor. Although each beam has very less effect on the brain tissue it passes through, a high dose of radiation is delivered to the place where all the beams meet.

The precision of brain stereotactic radiosurgery results in minimal radiation delivery to healthy tissues surrounding the target. Gamma Knife radiosurgery is usually a daycare therapy completed in a single day.

After the procedure, you will typically spend 3-5 days in the hospital, depending on the size and shape of the target. Most people only spend 24 hours in the hospital before getting discharged. An MRI or CT scan is performed a day after the surgery to identify the treatment's success. You are followed up with MRIs every six months after the surgery.
