3rd November 2009 - News release


Stereotactic Radiosurgery (SRS) is claimed to offer a less invasive way to eliminate tremors caused by Parkinson's Disease than Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) and Radiofrequency (RF) treatments, and is as effective, according to a long-term study. Stereotactic radiosurgery is a precise form of radiation therapy used primarily to treat tumors and other abnormalities of the brain. Stereotactic radiosurgery is a non-surgical procedure that delivers a single high-dose of precisely-targeted radiation using highly focused gamma-ray or x-ray beams that converge on the specific area or areas of the brain where the abnormality resides. For more information go to Stereotactic Surgery. In a long term study amongst hard-to-treat tremors caused by Parkinsonís Disease and Essential Tremors, 84% of patients had significant or complete resolution of tremors. In patients with Parkinsonís disease, 83% had near or complete tremor resolution, while those with essential tremor had 87% tremor resolution. For more information go to the News release.
