Gamma Knife Recommendation
« on: May 15, 2008, 11:45:53 am »
I highly recommend Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center in Winston-Salem NC for Gamma Knife (  The staff and doctors are very concerned, caring and competent.  When you are first diagnosed, you can mail your MRI to the doctors there and they will give you their recommendations over the phone.  They do a lot of GK procedures there, which is a major factor in deciding where to have the procedure.  Lisa Wilkins, R.N., Stereotactic Coordinator, will be your initial contact.  She is so wonderful.  I live in Georgia, about 300 miles from Wake Forest.  I had GK on a small AN in Dec 2006.  The doctors were very happy with my results when I went for my follow-up MRI in May 2007.   
Diagnosed 7/06: AN - right side: 1.3cm in transverse dimension, 6mm in AP dimension, and 6mm in cephalocaudal dimension.
GK 12/06- Wake Forest Univ Baptist Med Ctr
MRI 5/07- Some necrosis;  Now SSD
MRI 12/08- AN size has reduced 50%
MRI 12/11- AN stable (unchanged from 12/08)
Next MRI: 12/16
