Overview

Gamma Knife surgery is a type of radiation therapy used to treat tumors, vascular malformations, and other abnormalities in the brain. Gamma Knife surgery, like other forms of stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS), is not surgery in the traditional sense because there is no incision. Instead, Gamma Knife surgery uses specialized equipment to focus on 200 tiny beams of radiation on a tumor or other target with submillimeter accuracy. Although every beam has very little effect on the brain tissue it passes through, a strong dose of radiation is delivered to the place where all the beams meet.

Symptoms

This type of radiation treatment is usually performed when:

  1. A tumor or other abnormality in the brain is too hard to reach with standard neurosurgery
  2. A person isn’t strong enough to undergo standard surgery
  3. A person prefers a less invasive treatment
