Cost of Gamma Knife

I just wonder because some of you has underwent through it. And it surprises me because some of you describe it oh-so-casually, like it is the next cheapest thing. Mine amounted to $10,000. I had it in 1998. My neurologist claimed the only Gamma Knife center in Asia is in the Philippines and Jordan (so you really are lucky…). I was the 100th patient, and it was such a coincidence that our country was celebrating our 100th year of independence then.

I was recommended to have one again last July. But as far the radiologist who did my angiogram is concerned, I didn’t need one anymore. The AVM has reduced its size. It has even managed to hide itself away to an area medical people can’t see.
