Hospital San Javier is the first medical institution in Mexico and Latin-America to offer a technology formally known as Stereotactic Radiosurgery using Gamma-Knife.
The purpose of this technology is to treat brain lesions with no need to open the skull. Experience of more than 20 years and more than 1000 patients treated support the commitment of our institution to provide state-of-the-art medical technologies to ensure patient safety..
Nowadays, the San Javier Neuro-Radiosurgery Center using Gamma Knife has acquired last generation robot-operated equipment: the Gamma-Knife Perfexion to offer the highest accuracy to treat brain lesions with no surgical wound. This process is carried out by a multi-disciplinary team composed of neurosurgeons, radio-oncologists, medical physicists, neuro-radiologists, technicians and nurses with a special training.
By using this technology, the risk of surgical complications, such as hemorrhage or infection is practically inexistent and the procedure is performed under local anesthesia (except for a pediatric patient). Hospital stay of a patient will not exceed two days and one night and resuming life prior to treatment is immediate.
The procedure usually lasts 2 to 4 hours and comprises 4 basic steps:
Hospital San Javier has again shown its commitment to the community to stay at the forefront of technologies and to offer the best and most innovating solutions for the total health and benefit of its patients by taking their quality of life as a priority.
