About the offer

Gamma Knife radiosurgery is a non-invasive method that uses identical beams of gamma radiation to destroy brain tumors. This targeted treatment kills tumor cells while impacting healthy brain tissue as little as possible. It helps small to medium-sized tumors that are hard to reach or are close to critical brain structures. As an outpatient, a person can return to everyday life faster. Before the procedure, the patient's medical history, physical exam, consultation with a radiation oncologist, and lab tests are looked at to see if they are a good fit for Gamma Knife treatment. MRI scans help doctors determine where the tumor is located. Then, with a stereotactic head frame, radiation can be used accurately. During the treatment, the person lies on a table when the Gamma Knife machine sends focused radiation beams to the tumor. The process takes about an hour. After the procedure, care for side effects and treatment of symptoms is provided. Gamma Knife radiosurgery offers various benefits, including its non-invasive nature, high-precision targeting, and shorter treatment time. As an outpatient procedure, it allows for a quick recovery, lower risk of complications, and minimal discomfort. In addition, it is effective for inoperable tumors, can treat multiple lesions in a single session, and does not cause visible scarring.
