The Cost of Medical Radiosurgery Treatment: A Challenge for Many
For countless patients facing brain cancer and functional disorders, or seeking life-changing non-invasive radiosurgery treatments, the cost of care can be overwhelming. These cost barriers could lead to delays in treatments, added stress for patients and their families, and, in some cases, a lack of access to essential medical procedures.
Gamma Knife Radiosurgery: Advancing Healthcare with Precision
Gamma Knife radiosurgery is an innovative and non-invasive medical technique that uses precisely targeted radiation beams to treat brain disorders such as tumors, vascular malformations, and trigeminal neuralgia. This state-of-the-art procedure offers exceptional accuracy, minimizing damage to surrounding healthy tissue and providing patients with faster recovery times compared to traditional open surgery.
Esprit includes a variety of innovations now available in a single platform and continues to offer clinicians the option of frameless or frame-based workflows with a frame that provides superior visualization. Remote treatment planning capabilities increases and improves workflow efficiency, as well as providing remote accessibility and collaboration tools designed to meet the needs of changing environments.
