Cancer patients, who have benefited from SPMF (Sequentially Programmed Magnetic Fields) technology, came together on Saturday and shared their experiences on the occasion of World Brain Tumour Day, which is observed on June 8.
The event was an initiative of Wing Commander (Dr) V G Vasishta (retd), CEO and Founder of SBF Healthcare and Research Centre Pvt Ltd, former Prof and HoD of Department of Radio Diagnosis, Institute of Aerospace Medicine, Indian Air Force, Bangalore.
The SPMF therapy is a technology that produces highly complex sequentially programmed magnetic fields, which are computer controlled and precisely focused on to the target tissues with the help of laser guides. These are non-thermal, non-ionising and have no known side-effects. There are different pre-programmed treatment protocols which the doctor decides for each patient based on the location and grade of the tumour and the stage of the disease.
“Brain cancer is a devastating disease and losing someone you love to such an aggressive illness is not only traumatic, but also extremely distressing for the family and friends. Researchers world over have been trying various treatment methods of surgery, chemotherapy and radiation, but the survival rates have been quite dismal. I am happy to bring forward a new technology - SPMF - which has shown very good results. SPMF, being non-invasive and safe, has had excellent patient compliance. Many patients with high grade malignant gliomas with an expected survival period of 7-9 months have survived for periods exceeding three years after treatment with SPMF,” Dr Vasishta claimed.
