Brain Tumor Treatment with Gamma Knife
Gamma Knife Radiosurgery is an effective, non-invasive alternative or supplement to traditional brain surgery. This highly sophisticated technology precisely directs focused radiation to specific targets in the brain.
Brain tumors we treat with Gamma Knife Radiosurgery include:
- Malignant Tumors such as metastatic brain tumors (cancer spread to the brain), gliomas, chondrosarcoma
- Benign Tumors such as acoustic neuromas (vestibular schwannomas), meningiomas, pituitary adenomas
The treatment is typically performed in a single outpatient session without general anesthesia. This proven technique will help you avoid incision, scarring, and long hospital stays while minimizing surgical complications. For many conditions, Gamma Knife treatment is the most accurate form of stereotactic radiosurgery available.
