What is Gamma Knife?
Gamma Knife is a type of radiosurgery that uses highly focused radiation to treat various tumors. The procedure is outpatient and does not require cuts or anesthesia.
Before the surgery, the patient undergoes imaging scans to identify the exact tumor’s location. The patient will lie on a moving table. The technician will attach a frame to the patient’s head to keep it still. The Gamma Knife machine will send a series of highly focused gamma radiation beams to the treated area. It takes a few hours to finish. Doctors will watch the patient for a short time. Most patients can go back home on the same day.
Gamma Knife treatment uses highly focused beams of gamma radiation. It lets doctors target specific body parts without exposing the surrounding tissue. Most Gamma Knife treatments only take one session, which lasts from 30 minutes to several hours, depending on the size and placement of the tumor. The treatment lower infection and bleeding more than surgery. Gamma Knife treats tumors that are located in hard-to-reach places. Most people have only mild side effects, like light headaches or tiredness. Most of the time, the side effects are temporary and can be treated with painkillers.
