Topic: Gamma Knife at Mayo clinic
Hi all - I'm new to the site. Last month I was diagnosed with PSC and last week they confirmed I have cholangiocarcinoma. My gastroenterologist was going to send me to Memorial Sloan-Kettering in NYC but after talking with the specialist there, he doesn't think surgery is the best option right now.
He has recommended I go to Rochester, MN to the Mayo Clinic to see Dr. Axel Grothey, a GI medical oncologist. I believe he's going to perform Gamma Knife stereotactic radiosurgery: http://www.mayoclinic.org/stereotactic- … knife.html
I read some accounts of Cyberknife treatment here on the site. I'm assuming it's the same treatment. But the accounts here all seem to be 2 years or older. Has anyone had this procedure recently? Anyone know anything about Dr. Grothey? Can anyone give me info about the Mayo Clinic and places for my family to stay for extended periods of time for cheap? We'll be traveling from NJ to get there.
