Gamma Knife® Radiosurgery
This form of radiosurgery delivers a high dose of radiation precisely to the target and has been found extremely effective in treating certain brain tumours and other malformations. The procedure is an innovative radiotherapy treatment which offers little or no pain, no incisions and rapid recovery time.
