Many of the conditions we treat with radiosurgery can also be handled with surgery. But Gamma Knife offers similar precision without many of the risks and discomfort of open surgery and general anesthesia.
Gamma Knife radiosurgery requires no incision and is done under local anesthesia with minimal discomfort.
Radiosurgery is an attractive option for patients with co-existing illnesses where conventional surgery poses unacceptable risks.
As a one-day outpatient procedure, Gamma Knife treatment is often more cost-effective than open surgery. Hospitalization is only required in exceptional circumstances, and most patients return to their normal activities within 24 hours of the procedure.
We select Gamma Knife candidates after we thoroughly review all prior medical records and imaging studies by our specialist teams of neurosurgeons and radiation oncologists.
