Live webcast of GK for an AN
« on: December 20, 2006, 09:16:38 am »

For any of you that are trying to decide on the Gamma Knife procedure I just heard about this yesterday.  Saint Joseph's Hospital is giving a live webcast of the GK procedure.  This is what their article says: 

Gamma Knife Radiosurgery Treatment for an Acoustic Neuroma
January 17, 2007
at 4:00 PM CST (22:00 UTC)
From Saint Joseph's Hospital and Marshfield Clinic

Gamma Knife radiosurgery for an acoustic neuroma will be featured on the sixth webcast sponsored by Saint Joseph's Hospital and Marshfield Clinic. It is set for 4-5 p.m. CST Wednesday, January 17th.

During the webcast, Marshfield Clinic physicians on staff at Saint Joseph's Hospital will discuss the sophisticated treatment option for acoustic neuroma. The program will feature a pre-taped Gamma Knife procedure and real-time panel discussion and analysis.

To see a preview go to

I'm a little scared to watch it....yet I would really like to know exactly what they do.  I'm trying to decide between the GK and CK procedures.

The webcast is 10.00pm UK members.

Residing UK. In 'watch & wait' since diagnosis in March 2002 with right side AN. Initially sized at 2.5cm and now self reduced to 1.3cm.
All symptoms have abated except impaired hearing on affected side which is not a problem for me.
