Swedish Establishes Integrated Radiosurgery Center in Seattle

Gamma Knife® paired with CyberKnife® in region’s first facility of its kind

SEATTLE, March 8, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Two of the most advanced tools for precise, radiotherapy-based treatment are now under one roof in Seattle. Swedish Medical Center this month became the first facility in the Pacific Northwest – and one of only a handful in North America – to open a unit that incorporates both CyberKnife and Gamma Knife technologies. The 3,950-square-foot Swedish Radiosurgery Center, formerly known as the Seattle CyberKnife Center, is located on the "A" Level of the James Tower on the Cherry Hill Campus at 500-17th Ave.

The Center recently installed the latest model Leksell Gamma Knife, made by Elekta. It complements the Accuray CyberKnife, which has been operational for five years and been used on approximately 1,000 patients. The neurologists, neurosurgeons, neuro-oncologists and neuroradiologists of the Swedish Neuroscience Institute have joined forces with the radiation and medical oncologists of the Swedish Cancer Institute to provide a broad range of experience and expertise matched at few centers in the world.
