Is Gamma Knife Right For Me?
The Gamma Knife involves no incision, minimal pain and greatly reduced risk for the patient. In addition, it offers new hope for a variety of lesions that previously were unsuccessfully treated by conventional surgery, chemotherapy or radiation therapy.

The safety and effectiveness of gamma knife make it the optimal choice for treating a wide variety of brain disorders. Patients with the following conditions should consider gamma knife as well as patients concerned about the rigors of conventional surgery because of other health conditions such as high blood pressure or heart disease.

DISORDERS TREATED

Brain Cancers and Tumors:
Acoustic Neuroma
Brain metastases (cancers that have spread from their original site to the brain)
Chordoma
Craniopharyngioma
Glioma
Hemangioblastoma
Meningioma
Pineal tumors
Pituitary adenoma

Vascular Disorders:
Arteriovenous malformations (AVM)
Arteriovenous fistulas (AVF)
Cavernomas

Functional Disorders:
Trigeminal neuralgia
Epilepsy
Parkinson’s disease

In addition to its high success rate, radiosurgery with the Gamma Knife offers tremendous technical accuracy, so a high dose of radiation can be delivered to a target with minimum risk to nearby tissues and structures. Since there is no incision, there are no surgical risks such as infection and there is little patient discomfort. The patient may be lightly sedated but is awake throughout the procedure. Hospitalization is short—at most an overnight stay, with the majority of patients being treated on an outpatient basis.
