location_onGermany, Krefeld

Gamma Knife and Radiotherapy Center

The Gamma Knife and Radiotherapy Center Krefeld specializes in the stereotactic radiosurgical treatment of benign and malignant tumors. The peculiarity of this clinic lies in the innovative technologies of targeted radiotherapy, thanks to which healthy tissues can be completely removed from the radiation zone. At the same time, tumors and their metastases are removed with an accuracy of up to 0,3 mm. It is important that in the treatment of brain tumors, ionizing radiation does not damage the hippocampus, which is responsible for memory and the ability to experience emotions. Due to the high accuracy and effectiveness of the intervention, the Gamma Knife method is recognized as the gold standard of modern surgery. A single procedure, which is usually outpatient, without hospitalization, is enough to provide effective treatment.

  • Endoscopic surgeries are carried out in Germany using state-of-the-art equipment, which allows achieving high precision of surgeon’s actions.
  • Neuronavigation is an innovative technique used during brain surgery.
  • Robotic operating systems.
  • Radiofrequency ablation, i.e. thermal destruction of the tumor focus.
  • Transplantation and prosthetics are offered after removal of an organ affected by malignancy.

The accuracy of manipulation during surgery is ensured by intraoperative CT scanners and other diagnostic equipment.

Modern Radiotherapy Techniques

Radiotherapy is a traditional ​​cancer treatment method. Development of medical technologies expanded the possibility of radiotherapy reducing its side effects.

  • Gamma knife is a unique method of radiosurgery, comparable to a surgery by effectiveness.
  • Brachytherapy is an option of local radiotherapy.
  • Proton therapy allows a targeted tumor radiation.
  • Modulated intense radiotherapy.
  • SIRT-therapy uses radioactive substances on a spherical medium. It improves the accuracy of therapeutic impact with minimal interference in healthy tissue functions.

Innovative Drug Therapy

Drug treatment in German clinics is usually used as an auxiliary method, and in cases where the surgery is contraindicated for some reason. The treatment of cancer pathology employs:

  • induction chemotherapy;
  • bimodal radiochemotherapy;
  • hyperthermic chemoperfusion;
  • chemoembolization;
  • immunotherapy;
  • targeted anticancer drugs;
  • antiangiogenic therapy.

Treatment in German cancer clinics is based on the principles of individual approach, comprehensiveness, minimal invasiveness, optimum efficiency and the fastest possible recovery. High qualification of professionals, use of modern technologies and attention to every patient allow the German doctors to reach positive results even in the most difficult cases.
