Gamma Knife® Radiosurgery
Gamma Knife technology is a powerful new treatment option for brain tumors. It involves no cutting and is incredibly precise.
The technology offers new hope to many who were previously considered poor candidates for traditional surgery because of advanced age or poor health, or who had tumors that were considered untreatable.
At University Hospitals Neurological Institute, we offer Perfexion™ technology, which is the most advanced Gamma Knife equipment available. It ensures the best possible results in the least amount of time for a wide range of patients.
Gamma Knife's sophisticated technology precisely targets the tumor with powerful cobalt gamma radiation. Pinpoint accuracy protects healthy brain tissue surrounding the tumor. It limits side effects, while promoting better results and faster healing.
Gamma Knife Offers Numerous Advantages for Patients
Gamma Knife technology is among the most accurate noninvasive treatments available for brain tumors. Advantages include:
- The treatment is completely noninvasive, without incisions or anesthesia.
- Results are comparable to and sometimes better than conventional surgery.
- Gamma Knife is suitable for patients of all ages, regardless of coexisting conditions.
