FAQ
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.
 
Is Cytotron comfortable and safe?
 
Patient feels no pain or discomfort during treatment. Cytotron is certified by DRDO, Government of India as safe, non-ionizing and non-thermal complying with the International Commission of non-ionizing Radiation standards.
 
What joints can be treated with Cytotron?
 
Cytotron can treat knee, hip, ankle, shoulder, elbow, wrist, cervical and lumbar spine joints.
 
What tests are required before Cytotron treatment?
 
X-ray and MRI of the joint, blood, urine and other routine tests are required before Cytotron treatment.
 
Is Cytotron possible in old age and heavy patients?
 
Yes, Cytotron Therapy is possible in elderly and overweight patients. Eldest patient treated by us so far is 94 years and heaviest 132 Kg
weight. However we do advise to reduce weight for good health.
 
Which patients cannot be treated with Cytotron?
 
Patients with any MRI incompatible implant or having pregnancy cannot be treated with Cytotron.
 
Is Cytotron possible in patients with Diabetes, High Blood Pressure, Heart Disease, etc?
 
Yes, Cytotron is possible in arthritis patients having these and most other diseases.
 
How does the patient know that he is better?
 
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.
 
Why not replacement of knee or other joint?
 
All surgeries have risk to life and no treatment is successful in every patient. A failed joint replacement can cripple a patient for life. The life of artificial joint is limited and a second surgery is more difficult, more risky and less successful. Cytotron can not be done after joint replacement so Cytotron should be considered before joint replacement. Surgery should be preserved as the ultimate last option and is the only option available for patients unfit or high risk for surgery due to advanced asthama lung disease or diabetics or heart problem.
 
What is the success rate and duration of effectiveness of Cytotron therapy?
 
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 guess that the benefit should last 5 to 10 years.
 
What if Cytotron fails or there is a recurrence?
 
In patients where Cytotron fails or there is recurrence over time the therapy can be safely repeated. As a last resort Joint replacement can be considered for them.
 
Is Cytotron possible after arthroscopy or joint replacemnent?
 
Cytotron therapy is possible after arthroscopy but not after joint replacement.
