Burdenko Institute of Neurosurgery selects robotic radiosurgery system from Accuray

Accuray : 08 August, 2008  (Application Story)
The Burdenko Institute of Neurosurgery in Moscow has purchased a CyberKnife Robotic Radiosurgery System from Accuray.
When the system is installed, the Burdenko Institute will become the second facility in Russia to offer advanced robotic Radiosurgery treatments.

The CyberKnife System will enable the Burdenko Institute to expand its ability to treat tumours and other diseases of the brain and spine. With real-time image guidance and the ability to adjust for patient and tumor movement during treatment, clinicians are able to deliver radiation with extreme precision without requiring patients to be positioned in uncomfortable frames. Because it is non-invasive and does not require the use of frames, the CyberKnife System is ideal for those users who wish to deliver fractionated intracranial treatments.

“The Burdenko Institute is world renowned for its expertise in the treatment of neurological conditions,” said Eric P Lindquist, senior vice president and chief marketing officer of Accuray Incorporated. “With the addition of a CyberKnife System, clinicians there will be able to expand their radiosurgical capabilities, while offering patients a viable, non-invasive alternative to traditional surgery.”

Established in 1932 as the Moscow Institute of Neurosurgery the facility focused specifically on neurosurgery. The institute was later renamed for Nikolai Nilovich Burdenko, who is regarded as the founder of Russian neurosurgery. The Burdenko Institute currently is led by Alexander N Konovalov, MD, PhD, who has served as its director for more than 32 years and is one of the foremost figures in Russian neurosurgery.
