Rotational Field Quantum Magnetic Resonance (RFQMR)
Avoid knee replacement surgery with RFQMR treatment
What is Osteoarthritis?
In osteoarthritis, the cartilage in the knee joint gradually wears away. As the cartilage wears away, it becomes frayed and rough, and the protective space between the bones decreases. This can result in bone rubbing on bone, and produce painful bone spurs. Osteoarthritis develops slowly and the pain it causes worsens over time.
Symptoms of Osteoarthritis
The joint may become stiff and swollen, making it difficult to bend and straighten the knee.
Pain and swelling may be worse in the morning, or after sitting or resting.
Vigorous activity may cause pain to flare up.
Loose fragments of cartilage and other tissue can interfere with the smooth motion of joints. The knee may "lock" or "stick" during movement. It may creak, click, snap or make a grinding noise (crepitus).
Pain may cause a feeling of weakness or buckling in the knee.
Many people with arthritis note increased joint pain with rainy weather.
What is Cytotron/RFQMR Therapy?
Cytotron developed after years of research, produces Rotational Field Quantum Magnetic Resonance (RFQMR). It is a new, advanced, scientifically proven, non-invasive and effective option to treat osteoarthritis. The RFQMR beams are focused on the joint to enhance regeneration of the degenerated cartilage to help patients eliminate chronic pain and improve mobility of the joints without surgery. Cytotron/RFQMR is certified by DRDO, Government of India as safe, non-ionising and non-thermal complying with the International Commission of Non-Ionising Radiation standards.
How it works?
Patient lies on the RFQMR/Cytotron bed that moves into the focus area and the treating rays are focused onto the affected joint with the aid of laser guides. The computer calculates the dose based on the MRI, cartilage thickness, etc. The treatment is given for one hour daily for 21 days. Patient feels no pain or discomfort during treatment.
Who should have RFQMR?
Cytotron/RFQMR treatment is for people experiencing osteoarthritis at the knee, hip, ankle, shoulder, elbow, wrist, cervical and lumbar spine joints.
Who should not have RFQMR?
Patients with any MRI incompatible implant or having pregnancy cannot be treated with Cytotron/RFQMR.
Benefits of RFQMR
No anaesthesia required
Short treatment time
No long term recovery period
Usually no hospital stay required
Reduction of medicines for knee pain
Increased cartilage at the treated area
No acute or long-term side-effects
How does the patient know he has improved?
Patient feels better, has less pain, needs less or no pain killer medicines, can walk longer distance more comfortably and some can even climb stairs and sit on the floor. Pre and post Cytotron X-rays and MRI can document improvement. There is increase in capacity, range of motion and joint stability.
Success rate of Cytotron/RFQMR?
Published clinical trials have shown that most patients benefit from Cytotron therapy but like every treatment the result and the duration of effectiveness varies from patient to patient depending on the disease process. We believe the benefit should last 5 to 10 years.
Safety of Cytotron/RFQMR?
Cytotron/RFQMR is non-invasive and can be performed without the risks associated with surgical procedures. Additionally, the rate of complications resulting from Cytotron/RFQMR is considered negligible, with no reports of arrhythmias, heart failure, syncope, palpitations, breathing difficulty, bleeding, embolism, shock, or troponin.
