Northern Westchester Hospital Provides Advanced Head and Neck Cancer Treatment Through Gamma Knife Stereotactic Surgery
Date:6/25/2013

Mt. Kisco, New York (PRWEB) June 25, 2013

Northern Westchester Hospital announced today that it has become the only facility between Manhattan and Syracuse, NY to offer patients advanced head and neck cancer treatment using the latest and most advanced system for stereotactic radiosurgery. The Gamma Knife Perfexion is considered the gold standard for the non-invasive treatment of a variety of cancerous and benign neurological conditions, such as acoustic neuromas, arteriovenous malformations, gliomas, pituitary tumors and trigeminal neuralgia.

“By eliminating a surgical incision, trauma to surrounding delicate brain tissue no longer occurs. The results of stereotactic radiosurgery treatment are typically so good that even highly experience neurosurgeons would be challenged to equal those results with open surgery,” said Alain C.J. de Lotbinière, M.D., C.M., FACS, FRCSC, Medical Director of the The Gamma Knife Center at Northern Westchester Hospital. “This highly precise, non-invasive procedure enables us to treat patients in one day, allowing the patient to return to regular activities the following day with fewer long-term complications.”

The Gamma Knife technology is used to treat patients with brain tumors by applying beams of radiation that pass harmlessly through healthy tissue, but combine at a single concentrated point to destroy diseased tissue or brain tumors without a single incision. The well-established technology works by precisely concentrating 192 individual beams of radiation on a single disease
