Department of radiosurgery
The department of radiosurgery is recognized as International Reference Center for CyberKnife and ZAP-X technologies. Over 10,000 patients were treated at the centre. Including the years of implementation of the GammaKnife method, the precursor technology to CyberKnife, the department's physicians have almost 30 years of experience in the field of radiosurgery. In addition to the heading professor, the experts include the former head of the CyberKnife Center of the University Hospital Charite Berlin. The department is involved in scientific work, developing the science behind radiosurgical technology in cooperation with universities and medical societies. Many of the patients were treated in close consultation with colleagues of the University of Munich. The International Radiosurgery Society awarded the department for quality and highest standard medical services.
Radiosurgery is a method of precise radiation therapy used in cancer treatment. The main indications for radiosurgery are acoustic neuromas, meningiomas, and malignant melanomas of the eye (uveal melanoma). Treatment does not involve wounds or openings.
