Spain's Hospital Ruber Internacional celebrates 20 years of excellence in Gamma Knife radiosurgery
Date:11/20/2013

MADRID, Nov. 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- In 1993, Hospital Ruber Internacional became the world's 43rd Leksell Gamma Knife® center, treating its first patient – a 60-year-old female patient with a frontal meningioma – on August 23 of that year. Both the patient and the hospital's Radiosurgery and Functional Neurosurgery Unit are still going strong today. Operating Spain's only Gamma Knife system, the hospital has delivered radiosurgery to over 6,000 patients with a wide range of tumors and functional and vascular brain disorders.

Hospital Ruber Internacional will host the European Society of Leksell Gamma Knife at its annual congress, November 22-24.

Gamma Knife radiosurgery is a gentler alternative to traditional brain surgery for illnesses such as metastatic disease, which is cancer that has traveled to the brain from elsewhere in the body. With pinpoint accuracy, the system delivers up to thousands of low-intensity radiation beams to one or more targets in a single session. The latest Gamma Knife technology, Leksell Gamma Knife® Perfexion™ provides even greater speed and ease of use than previous models.

On the first day of the congress, Hospital Ruber Internacional will convene a symposium for members of the Society and referring physicians in Spain on the hospital's two decades of Gamma Knife experience.

As a pioneer of Gamma Knife radiosurgery, Hospital Ruber Internacional has operated successive versions of the system.

"We started with Gamma Knife B and switched to Gamma Knife C in 2000, then upgraded that system with the APS™ [Automatic Positioning System] in 2001," says Roberto Martinez, MD, Ruber neurosurgeon and Director of the Radiosurgery
