gamma knife surgery


Recommended Posts

for anyone who has had it, what hospitals have you had it done at? Who were the doctors? I live in Canada and we are not sure if it is available her, but it seems like a alternative treatment seeing that the radiation and chemo did not work.

Thanks again for all your warm wishes and support!!!!!!!!

Any info is greatly appreciated!

Hi Carls,

I've had Gamma Knife on a total of 4 mets they have found in my brain. The procedure was done at University Hospitals of Cleveland, OH. They are the Primary Affiliate of Case western Reserve Universities. There was actually a team of specialists in on the procedure but the 2 primary ones were Dr. Douglas Einstein who is a Neurosurgeon & Dr. Robert who is a Radiation Oncologisy Specialist. The literature I have does not list a website but does have an 800 #. 1-800-552-8338.

I had great success with the procedure on the first 2 tumors. I'm in the hurry up & wait mode on the second set of 2. They won't be able to tell me if that was successful till my June scans.

Good luck & Prayers headed your way,
