Apollo Hospitals has integrated the ZAP-X technology into their neurological care, offering an innovative alternative to traditional brain tumor treatment methods. This technology utilizes a self-shielded, gyroscopic linear accelerator design that accurately focuses radiation on the tumor, minimizing exposure to healthy brain tissue and reducing the risk to critical structures such as the brain stem and optic nerves.

Dr. Prathap Chandra Reddy, Founder Chairman of Apollo Hospitals Group, emphasized the hospital’s dedication to providing exceptional care and making such advanced technology accessible to patients not only in India but across various geographies. The introduction of ZAP-X is seen as a significant advancement in the battle against non-communicable diseases, including cancer.

Prof. John R. Adler, Founder and CEO of Zap Surgical and Professor of Neurosurgery at Stanford School of Medicine, highlighted the importance of stereotactic radiosurgery as a major medical advancement. The ZAP-X system allows for treatments to be completed in an outpatient setting, often enabling patients to resume normal activities the same day without the need for surgical intervention.

The Apollo Institute of Neurosciences stands at the forefront of neurological care innovation, with a record of over 180,000 successful neurosurgeries. Its commitment to adopting advanced technologies like AI for better diagnosis and treatment, along with the introduction of the ZAP-X platform, further solidifies Apollo’s position as a leader in healthcare and patient treatment advancements.
