A healthcare provider discusses how the gamma knife procedure can benefit a patient.

Gamma Knife

Make an Appointment

If you're facing brain surgery, you might have another option. Gamma Knife treatment can shrink or destroy brain tumors in a safe, effective way.

Gamma Knife radiosurgery uses focused radiation to target brain and pituitary tumors, arteriovenous malformations (AVMs), acoustic neuromas and other conditions. When traditional brain surgery can't help or fails, Gamma Knife is the treatment of choice.

How Does Gamma Knife Treatment Work?

Without a scalpel or knife, Gamma Knife radiosurgery delivers radiation more accurately than conventional radiation therapy. It creates high-energy beams of radiation strong enough to deactivate even some of the most aggressive tumors.
