Brachytherapy is an irradiation technology performed by replacement of radioactive sources to body spaces or tissues (temporarily). Brachytherapy is especially applied in gynecologic cancers; provides the effectiveness of the treatment with less harm to surrounding tissues and causing accumulation of high dose at tumor region.It can be applied before or after external treatment and while higher doses are given to a more local region and provides better tumor control, since less doses were given to the surrounding sensitive tissue and normal tissue complication rates decrease.
First in Turkey! The world's most advanced robot is in Medipol... The world's most advanced surgical robot is present in Medipol University Hospital as the first time in Turkey. Important operations are performed by interventions from small holes with surgical robot which is one of the most important developments of that technology presented to medicine. This system provides great comfort and convenience to both surgeon and the patient.
Extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL) is the most common type of lithotripsy. High-energy shock waves, also called sound waves, will pass through your body until they hit the kidney stones. If you are awake, you may feel a tapping feeling when this starts. The waves break the stones into tiny pieces. A tube may be placed through your bladder or back into your kidney. This tube will drain urine from your kidney until all the small pieces of stone pass out of your body. This may be done before or after your lithotripsy treatment.
