What is the Gamma Knife?
The Gamma Knife Perfexion is ultra-precise radiation to treat complex or multiple brain tumors. It takes just one day. It is the gold standard "stereotactic radiosurgery", used to treat both benign and cancerous brain tumors and brain metastases.
Gamma Knife doesn’t use a knife at all — it uses radiation to damage tumors without opening the skull. Multiple, precise radiation beams from many directions converge on the tumor. Gamma Knife minimizes radiation to the surrounding normal brain tissue, making it more precise than whole-brain radiation.
