Among the patients suited for Gamma Knife are those:
- With a tumor in the brain that is too difficult to reach with standard radiation or surgery
- Who are not healthy enough or too old for surgery
- Who prefer a less-invasive treatment
In some cases, Gamma Knife is the only feasible approach for treatment. Gamma Knife may also be used along with standard radiation treatment or neurosurgery.
Gamma Knife is also used for some non-cancerous tumors and other conditions, such as:
- Acoustic neuromas
- Ocular disorders
- Trigeminal neuralgia
- Pituitary adenomas
