Patient Navigator Program
Your patient-to-patient resource
We want you to know that you are not alone. A brain tumor diagnosis can be overwhelming—the research, the treatment decisions, and the emotions. We created the GammaTile Patient Navigator Program so you always have someone to turn to, someone experienced who has been on the same path as you. A GammaTile Patient Navigator has received GammaTile Therapy and wants to help others on their journeys. Whether you or a loved one is considering GammaTile Therapy or have already received GammaTile, it may be helpful to speak with one of our Patient Navigators.
Your Navigator is there for you every step of the way
Helping guide you on your pathway to healing
Answering questions about their experience and providing reassurance
Offering other resources and support
Take comfort in knowing there are many others who have been on the same path and chosen GammaTile Therapy to get a head STaRT in the fight against their brain tumors.
Meet a Patient Navigator
Meet Shannan, a low-grade glioma survivor
“After multiple surgeries, oral chemo and external beam radiation, I was ready to try something new, and I’m glad I received GammaTile Therapy. I feel great and bounced back quickly—my best recovery.”
GT Medical Technologies provides this connection to patients and caregivers, so that through their stories and personal contact, you can learn from those who have experience with GammaTile Therapy. These patients and caregivers volunteer their time to share their perspective on the Surgically Targeted Radiation Therapy (STaRT) procedure, treatment, and postprocedure experience. Each volunteer can only speak to their individual experience and cannot offer medical advice, as they are not healthcare providers. These patients and caregivers are not GT Medical Technologies employees and have not received any compensation for their stories or time spent in this program.
This site/program listing should not be used as a substitute for talking with your doctor. Always talk with your doctor to determine the right therapy for you.
