About GammaTile™ Therapy
GammaTile Therapy is a FDA-cleared, surgically targeted radiation therapy (STaRT) that is placed at the end of brain tumor excision surgery and immediately begins targeting residual tumor cells. GammaTile Therapy features a bioresorbable, conformable, 3D-collagen tile and uniform radiation source. This therapy offers advantages over the most common treatment for patients undergoing surgery for recurrent brain tumors: a course of External Beam Radiation Therapy (EBRT), which requires daily treatments for up to six weeks. Some patients may not be candidates for EBRT, and those patients who are candidates typically have to wait two weeks or more for surgical wound healing before beginning treatment, giving any residual tumor cells a chance to replicate. Patients treated with GammaTile Therapy require no additional trips to the hospital or clinic for radiation therapy. Because the therapy is targeted, patients receive radiation only where it is needed, and may receive a lower overall level of exposure to radiation.
GammaTile Therapy received FDA 510(k) clearance in July 2018 for the treatment of all types of recurrent brain tumors, including primary (benign or malignant) and metastatic tumors, and has an established CMS code for Medicare reimbursement.
