Thank you so much for your permanent support to the Stereotactic Radiotherapy Center Sigulda when entrusting us the treatment of your patients.
A year ago the first modern stereotactic radiotherapy centre in the Baltic using CyberKnife M6 device was opened in Sigulda, Latvia. In the course of this year our specialists have mastered and successfully applied stereotactic radiosurgery technology CyberKnife to treat patients with cranial and extracranial pathologies.
In 2016 SRC Sigulda treated patients with acoustic neuromas, meningiomas, multiple metastases in brain, pituitary adenomas, recurrent glial tumours, AVM, cerebral cavernous malformations, trigeminal neuralgia.
Center’s team of specialists led by therapist Dace Saukuma was the first in Latvia to successfully treat a patient suffering from uveal melanoma and also a patient suffering from recurrent salivary gland tumour by means of radiosurgery technology CyberKnife.
A special attention should be paid to stereotactic radiosurgery programme treating patients suffering from prostate cancer, led by physician Maris Mezeckis. Before launching a treatment with the state-of-art technology CyberKnife M6, patients are diagnosed as to the extent of destruction of prostate and remote metastases, and they are offered to have evaluation of PSMA-PET/CT imaging Gallium68 (in cooperation with Center “MedVision”) — the most up to date method of detection of prostate cancer in patients.
Number of patients with extracranial pathology (primary tumours or metastases in lungs, liver, kidneys, lymph nodes, bones) treated with radiosurgical device CyberKnife M6 continued to grow, reflecting a need for such type of therapy, namely ablation therapy in treating small-sized blastemas in virtually any part of body.
