Gamma Knife technology creates a nearly painless, incision-free treatment alternative for cancerous and non-cancerous tumors of the brain. More than 30,000 patients are treated safely and effectively with Gamma Knife surgery each year.
Gamma Knife surgery is a unique treatment method that isn’t actually a knife. Gamma Knife treatment is a form of stereotactic radiosurgery, a nonsurgical radiation therapy that enables highly focused radiation beams to be targeted directly to the lesion. The Gamma Knife uses 192 individual radiation beams to hit only the target while minimizing damage to the surrounding healthy tissue.
Glioblastoma - malignant tumors affecting the brain or spine
Meningioma - usually noncancerous tumors that arise from the membranes surrounding the brain and spinal cord
Pituitary adenoma - noncancerous tumors in the pituitary gland
Acoustic neuroma - noncancerous tumors on the main nerve leading from the inner ear to the brain
Hemangioblastoma - tumors that occur in blood vessels of the brain and spinal cord
Trigaminal neuralgia - a chronic pain condition affecting the trigeminal nerve in the face
