Gamma clinic, Obninsk, Russia. Gamma knife: treatment of brain tumors
Gamma Clinic Center for High-Precision Radiology has been operating since February 2018. The center conducts operations at the Leksell Gamma Knife Perfexion installation. This is a radiosurgical unit for the treatment of benign and malignant tumors and vascular malformations in the cranial cavity. The operation is done without skin incisions and craniotomy. For this, radioactive radiation from 196 sources of cobalt-60 is used, the beams of which come together and act like a non-invasive surgical knife.
They destroy the DNA of tumor cells, while healthy brain tissue and the entire body are not irradiated. Treatment is limited to one session as a result of which the genetic apparatus of the tumor cells is damaged, they lose the ability to divide and further increase the tumor mass.
The head of the center is Sergey Rustamovich Ilyalov, MD, MD, neurosurgeon, radiotherapist and healthcare organizer. He has vast experience in using the Gamma Knife for various types of intracranial pathology, especially in neurooncology and vascular neurosurgery. In 2008, he defended the first dissertation in Russia and the CIS on the Gamma Knife on the topic “Stereotactic Radiosurgery of Intracerebral Cancer Metastases on the Gamma Knife”.
