The video below provides an overview of Gamma Knife and what you can expect during a Gamma Knife procedure.
The Gamma Knife delivers 192 beams of radiation from multiple angles to a specific target with pinpoint accuracy while avoiding damage to the surrounding tissue through which the beams travel. Patients are treated in our outpatient center during a single treatment session with minimal, if any side effects.
Gamma Knife benefits
