Introduction to Gamma Knife® Neurosurgery for Cancer and Tumours

The Gamma Knife® radiosurgery system is a non-invasive method of treating brain conditions.

Gamma Knife® technology is able to target tumours in a very accurate way and deliver radiation with great precision, making it possible to give a large radiation dose, lethal to the tumour, with little risk to the surrounding normal tissues.

Gamma Knife® treatment is suitable for tumours in the brain but can also treat areas in the head and neck below the skull base. It can also be used to treat trigeminal neuralgia and vascular malformations in the brain. One of the many benefits of Gamma Knife® is that it enables neurosurgeons to treat many brain tumours that would otherwise be inaccessible for treatment.
