What is Gamma Knife surgery?

Leksell Gamma Knife surgery (or stereotactic radiosurgery), is a non-invasive method for treating benign and malignant brain tumors up to 4 cm in size. It is a high-precision radiotherapy device for a single high dose irradiation to treat:

  • intracranial blood vessels malformations
  • brain and eye tumours.

The device concentrates Gamma radiation in one point of the brain, so surrounding tissues are remained unaffected. Procedure takes a few hours, so only a one day hospital stay is required.

The patient was treated of brain tumor

I worked with bookimed to explore options for brain tumor surgery in Turkey. In less than 24 hours after filling out the form online with basic information, received a call from bookimed specialist. It was very helpful that Ivan Koval spoke both Russian and English. Upon sending patient's scans, Ivan was able to give his feedback on urgency of the matter and relayed all of that in both languages. Within one day, we received responses from 2 clinics. With Ivan's help we were able to evaluate both bids as well as quality of facilities. It was very reassuring that Ivan knew the names of the specialists that I had already researched. Since the parents of the child insisted that I made at least one contact directly with the clinic, the delay of the direct response and the quality of the bid were very disconcerting. Direct contact with a clinic was done by the clinic's administrative staff who began making contacts with orthopedist and ophthalmologist (based on symptoms caused by the brain tumor!). Contrary to the parents' expectations, direct contact was not "more economic" but turned out to be too vague and still unclear if the correct department was ever consulted. Ivan's situation was very difficult as he had to deal with a family who made decisions based on the cost (no regard for quality) and word of the mouth (no differentiation as to which procedure was done). He was very patient and compassionate to the fate of the child. Ivan was able to relay to the child's parents diagnosis, bids, comparisons, and complexity of the procedure to be performed. It takes several hours per day and several days to coordinate the correct diagnosis based on scans and numerous phone calls between different time zones to coordinate quick and accurate response. I received updates and calls as soon as they came in which implies that Ivan worked 24/7 to make the best arrangements. While my initial contact was a shot in the dark, over the course of few days I began to appreciate the sense of confidence that comes from having a trained medical specialist to represent your interests when "shopping" for a brain surgeon. No amount of googling and online reviews can substitute opinion from a trained medic in dealing with various clinics. At the end of the day, I feel that having Ivan to oversee the process from admission to the RIGHT clinic to take care of the RIGHT procedure (brain and not foot) all the way to discharge is a solid form of medical insurance.

Hope and faith work miracles. If you have hope and opportunity, you have to use it undoubtedly. And the first decision that springs to mind is the sole right. Everything was performed qualitatively, people are responsive. I want to say thank you to Sofia (Coordinator of International Patients Support), who helped us to make a right and sole choice. She provided us with all pros and cons, helped to make a right decision.

Is Gamma Knife surgery safe?

With 40 years of clinical use and over 3,000 published studies, the Gamma Knife has proven to be accurate and effective radiosurgery treatment system. Over 1 mill of people have been treated with this technology worldwide.

What are the advantages of Gamma Knife?

There is no actual cutting into the body and as a result many of the risks of traditional surgery are avoided. It is painless, bloodless and hair loss is minimal. Only a 1-day treatment is required. Hospitalization is rarely required and recovery time is minimal.

What is the success rate of Gamma Knife surgery?

Gamma Knife surgery is the gold standard for the treatment of intracranial tumors. It is used as the performance standard against which other technologies are measured.

What are the side effects of Gamma Knife surgery?

Potential side effects of gamma knife surgery depending on the location of the tumor and the disease. Most common side effects are nausea, vomiting, dizziness, headaches.

What is the difference between Gamma Knife and CyberKnife?

Gamma Knife can only target brain tumors with a single treatment of high-dose radiation, while CyberKnife is able to treat tumors anywhere on the body in 1-5 radiation sessions.

Gamma Knife surgery cost per treatment session

How much does Gamma knife surgery cost? The price of Gamma Knife surgery depends on several factors: type of the tumor, its size and a country where clinic is located. For example, radiosurgery treatment in Israel and Germany will be 20-50% more expensive than in Turkey or India even if the devices are the same. Anyway, Gamma Knife surgery has a 30% cost advantage over surgical resection (through craniotomy). Gamma Knife radiosurgery is less expensive than conventional neurosurgery because patients do not need post-surgical hospital stays, additional medications or rehabilitation.

On this page you can see average Gamma Knife surgery cost in different hospitals of the world. If you want to know the cost of Gamma Knife radiosurgery in your specific case, contact our Doctor-Coordinator.

The patient was treated of parathyroid adenoma

Despite us thoroughly pre-screening several hospitals and all looking good on paper and the website of this one our experience locally was just terrible! Waiting in the queue with dozens of other customers for an hour just to be registered... Interpreter who we did not order but had to pay for her services. However, the climax of all the process was the diagnostics and consultation with the doctor for which we paid 550Euro and then had to wait for nearly 10 days for the official report when it was promised to be delivered to us next day! Local coordinator Alexandra Zinnemann despite being the focal point just moved away from solving any issues blaming her other colleagues! Stay away!!! Not going to recommend to any of my friends in the future this clinics!
Reply from Team of International Office at Clinics Solingen:
"Dear Airat,

first of all, allow us to thank you for this very detailed and emotional feedback. We always take criticism very serious, since this helps our clinic to develop. We are really sorry that you had to wait for Prof. Sesterhenn despite having an appointment for a fixed time. Unfortunately, sometimes the circumstances in a hospital lead to a situation, in which the doctor has to participate in urgent unexpected surgery.

Prof. Sesterhenn has performed a comprehensive analysis and has discussed the results with the patient in detail. He has also orally answered all your questions. A written conclusion, however, is usually prepared within several working days thereafter. This is a standardized process: professor records his conclusion on tape; after that, his secretary prepares the document, which is again reviewed and signed by the professor. Only after this, a written conclusion can be handed out to patient.

We wish you good health, and all the best for the future.

Sincerely yours,
Team of International Office at Clinics Solingen"

The patient was treated of acute lymphoblastic leukemia

My close family relative was diagnosed with Acute Leukaemia a year ago at age of 26 and he needed a bone narrow transplant as the very last option to save his life. This procedure is not available in Ukraine and we spent weeks searching for the most affordable clinics with a good reputation. On January 12th, a few minutes right after visiting the website I was reached by Aleksey Berkovets from Bookimed.
He was an extremely polite, helpful and very professional. I really liked that compare to other services he didn`t promote any specific clinic or country, he gave me an options to choose from.
After only one short week on January 20th Dmytro was landed in Istanbul to start his treatment in Medipol Clinic!!

Thank you for your constant support Aleksey! You are much appreciated!

The patient underwent hip replacement

Hello! My name is Tamara, I am from Tbilisi. I applied to Bookimed with such a complex disorder as coxarthrosis of the hip. I suffered from this disorder during long time. I was born with congenital dislocation of the hip which was cured during the first three years of my life. Then, my family and I were in a car accident and my right hip was broken. I was treated during long time, had skeletal extension, then plaster, the therapy lasted two years until Dr. Ilizarov G.A. installed me Ilizarov apparatus. It was 35 years ago, since that I have finished my studies, got married, born children and grown them up. And I did not feel any inconvenience. Three years ago I felt an acute pain which did not let me neither walk nor sleep and made obstructions to my ordinary life. When I underwent a complete examination and had all tests, I was told that a surgery is the only solution. As I wanted to walk during the rest of my life without any complications and infections and had a guarantee, which our surgeons could not provide me (I don’t want to offend them), I have chosen this particular hospital. I found many clinics in Internet. Several hospitals in Germany and Israel offered me their assistance but for some reason I decided in favour of Helios Hospital in Hamburg. Medical experience of Professor Thorsten Herke inspired me confidence: he has made surgeries to many Georgian patients who can normally walk, ride a bicycle, drive and move at the moment. My choice was also influenced by presence of physiotherapist Sergei Karsten who practices all types of rehabilitation. He uses his own technique of massage and physical therapy. He knows how to develop joints to avoid stiffness of the body and to provide a full range of movements.

I had severe pains while walking and having load on my hips which limited my movements and Kazakh therapists proposed me only administration of strong analgesics. I did not receive physiotherapy and almost could not move I heard about good quality of German clinics and first of all that patients make a good recovery. Kazakh doctors believe that after installation of hip prosthesis normal range of movements can be achieved only in 6 months, but here I could start walking in several weeks after the surgery. I considered a treatment in Israel. Price policy there is almost the same as in Germany but there is no system of rehabilitation centers and rehabilitation therapy similar to German. I found a private clinic HELIOS-Endo. I was convinced both by reputation of the hospital and good reviews of Kazakhs who were treated there. I expected that after my treatment in Helios I can walk without pain. And regardless that I had the surgery less than two weeks ago, my condition has greatly improved. I am very satisfied with the result. Professor Gerke made my surgery and I want to express my gratitude to him. Besides excellent surgery and regardless extreme occupation, he paid me a lot of attention. I felt safe in the hospital.

The patient was treated of epilepsy

My 6-year old son was diagnosed with epilepsy. We couldn’t find an appropriate specialist in Czech Republic who could adequately assign medical treatment for 6 months. So, my wife and I decided to go for diagnostics and treatment abroad. To do this we turned to Bookimed company with a request to find and recommend us a specialized clinic that has a possibility to examine our child. Our coordinator Zeeshan Zaman offered several clinics. After a joint discussion we chose the Teknon Clinic in Barcelona and we’re totally satisfied with treatment! Antonio Russi consulted us and made all the tests. With prescribed medication my son doesn’t have any seizures at all.

The first sensation of my arrival - I am very satisfied with the service. We were greeted, brought to the hospital and what was promised to us was all done. We have a phone and when we do not understand something, we call and our translator immediately comes. I like it very much. And we have raised the hope that doctors here can help us and I really believe in that. We have already made PET, MRI, blood tests and now passing the fourth day of video monitoring. We asked Bookimed to find a clinic that can help us, then we had all our data sent and we were offered Spain. They said it is one of the best clinics in general.

I payed quite a lot of cash my visit of 15minutes consultation. I came home to where I live,Switzerland,emailed to schedule the actual procedure,very slow response,and at the end even calling his assistant didn't help,I gave up on the whole thing. No answer for a month now. Nu? I believe Dr. Should be there to help every patients equally with care and to give an answer. I really don't understand what goes on there.
