PHOENIX, AZ | May 17, 2021 — GT Medical Technologies today announced it has been honored by AZ Big Media with a 2021 Healthcare Leadership Award in the Healthcare Innovators of the Year category, which recognizes the best and the brightest in healthcare in Arizona. The company was acclaimed for its breakthrough GammaTile® Therapy that improves the lives of patients with brain tumors and was chosen by the editorial department at AZ Big Media for this award.
“We’re honored to be recognized as a leader in innovation and for improving treatment outcomes for patients with brain tumors,” said Matt Likens, president, and CEO of GT Medical Technologies. “This technology was invented and developed in Phoenix, and we’re grateful for the tremendous local support we’ve received here as we expand GammaTile Therapy’s use across leading brain tumor centers in the U.S.”
GammaTile Therapy gives patients new hope in the fight against brain tumors. It can eliminate the need for traditional repeat radiation treatments and associated hospital or clinic visits, so patients can focus on what matters most—healing. A neurosurgeon places GammaTile(s) precisely where and when treatment will help the most—at the tumor site inside the brain immediately after tumor removal. Radiation is focused right where the tumor is most likely to recur. GammaTile is designed to protect healthy tissue, minimizing radiation side effects, including hair loss. Over time, and after the therapeutic dose of radiation has been delivered, the tile is naturally absorbed into the adjacent tissue and the small, inactive seeds remain in the body.
“We selected GT Medical Technologies for this award because GammaTile is the first brain tumor device of its kind and the company is well-respected in the oncology community,” said Michael Gossie, editor-in-chief, AZ Big Media. “It’s quite gratifying to see Arizona companies with technologies that truly improve patients’ lives.”
GT Medical Technologies was chosen by the editorial department at AZ Big Media for this award. Details about the 2021 Healthcare Leadership Awards and the list of winners is available at: AZ Big Media.
