Neurodocs Hosts Online Chats on Gamma Knife Radiosurgery

HONOLULU--(BW HealthWire)--Jan. 18, 2001--St. Francis Healthcare System of Hawaii is sponsoring live health chats that anyone with Internet access will be able to chat for free with its doctors about a high-tech neurosurgical treatment called the Gamma Knife.

Doctors from the Gamma Knife Center of the Pacific (GKCP) will be hosting the hour-long chats on AmericasDoctor, a popular U.S. Internet health site. To join the chat, log on to www.stfrancishawaii.org or its sister web site at www.americasdoctor.com.

Upcoming scheduled chats are:

  • "Facial pain (Trigeminal Neuralgia) and Gamma Knife Treatment" with Dr. Marcus Keep, neurosurgeon, on Friday, January 26 at 3 pm (Alaska Time)/7 pm ET.
  • "Treatment of Brain Tumor with Gamma Knife" with Dr. Maurice Nicholson, neurosurgeon and Medical Director of the GKCP, on Friday, February 23 at 3 pm (Alaska Time)/7 pm ET.
  • "New Treatment for Vascular Malformation and Gamma Knife" with Dr. Leon Liem, neurosurgeon, on Friday, March 23 at 3 pm (Alaska Time)/7 pm ET.

"The Gamma Knife is not a knife at all, but a radiosurgical device that treats brain tumors with precisely focused 201 sources of radioactive cobalt 60. It's a one treatment procedure that allows the patient to return to their normal activities the next day," said Dr. Nicholson, Medical Director of the Gamma Knife Center of the Pacific, which is located at the St. Francis hospital in Hawaii.

A transcript of the chat will be posted in the library archive of AmericasDoctor.com. For more information, please e-mail Moon-Yun Choi of Public Relations at moonc@sfhs-hi.org.
