Insightec, Israel (https://insightec.com) is the first and only company to bring to market a Focused Ultrasound platform for treating medication refractory Essential Tremor and Parkinson’s Disease – it’s called Exablate Neuro. Their disruptive technology can deliver up to 1,024 ultrasound waves across the skull to precisely ablate a target deep in the brain. This incision-free treatment is performed in the MRI suite typically on an outpatient basis.
During a Focused Ultrasound treatment, the treating physician sits at a computer in the MRI control room, using a mouse instead of scalpel, to expertly create a lesion. Treatment is guided by MR imaging for patient-specific treatment planning, real-time thermal feedback, and continuous treatment monitoring.
Royal Care Super Speciality Hospital, Coimbatore has set up India’s First MRgFUS (Magnetic Resonance Guided Focused Ultrasound Surgery) – a new technology for the treatment of Essential Tremors and Tremor Dominant Parkinson’s disease. The hospital has started the operations and cured many patients.
HE Naor Gilon, Ambassador of Israel to India, inaugurated and dedicated India’s first MRgFUS Technology to the nation in the presence of Dr. K. Madeswaran, CMD, Royal Care Super Speciality Hospital, and other dignitaries.
