BERLINAtlantic General Pain Center Medical Director Dr. Wadid Zaky was recently invited to present at the London Pain Conference and the World Institute of Pain as an international speaker and clinical instructor.

The London Pain Conference & World Institute of Pain provides education and instruction for any healthcare professionals who treat patients with spinal pain. The goal is to enhance the knowledge and skill of clinicians in state-of-the-art interventional procedures in management of chronic refractory spinal pain.

Zaky was one of just four physicians invited from the U.S. to instruct on new techniques in the interventional pain field.

“I am truly honored to have joined pioneers in the field of pain intervention as a representative for the United States at the London Pain Conference. Having the privilege to share my expertise with well-respected experts in the field was an experience I will remember,” said Zaky.

System A First In U.S.

SALISBURY — Peninsula Regional Medical Center in Salisbury has become the first location in the United States to install Eckert & Ziegler BEBIG, Inc.’s new SagiNova® High Dose Rate afterloader system.

The system offers greater radiation dosage control and safety when using brachytherapy, a cancer treatment in which radioactive implants are inserted in the affected area. It issues warnings if, for example, radiation dose limits are exceeded near the bladder, to ensure that healthy organs and functions are protected while the radiation combats the cancer.

“We were extremely impressed with the advanced technology and safety features incorporated into their HDR system,” said Dr. John Mansueti, Medical Director of Radiation Oncology at PRMC. “We are excited to be the first in the United States to offer this system.”

Mansueti says the system makes it easier for physicists to ensure the radiation source is going in the exact place it needs to go, and once it is placed, the quality assurance is better. The Radiation Oncology Department at Peninsula Regional’s Richard A. Henson Cancer Institute has offered brachytherapy for nearly 30 years.
