“It’s extremely satisfying to treat someone with a debilitating problem
and see them get better with such a minimally invasive approach."
Marc Goldman, MD, Neurosurgeon

What Makes Gamma Knife Different?

Gamma Knife was developed with the philosophy
that the brain is special, and where the brain is concerned,
no instrument can be too refined.

  • GENTLE CARE
    EXPERIENCE

    In typically a single outpatient session, patients receive a treatment plan and treatment. Treatment is completed in a few hours, with little to no side effects.
  • CLINICALLY
    PROVEN

    Universally preferred. No other radiosurgery system has greater clinical acceptance. Gamma Knife radiosurgery is performed in leading hospitals around the world, with more than 70,000 patients treated every year.*

  • PIONEERING
    INNOVATION

    From its introduction as the first dedicated radiosurgery system to the countless refinements in planning and efficiency, Gamma Knife has set a standard of care that other radiosurgery systems seek to emulate.
  • EXCLUSIVELY
    BRAIN

    Gamma Knife is not a one-size-fits-all technology. It is solely focused on the brain, and only the brain. In fact, Gamma Knife is the only non-invasive radiosurgery system specifically engineered to treat delicate brain tissue.
  • MICROSCOPIC
    ACCURACY

    Multiple beams deliver the exact prescribed dose to the target areas while sparing surrounding healthy tissue.

“We see patients with tumors that traditionally we might have taken to the operating room and made a big incision and the patient may have stayed in the hospital for 3 to 5 days. Now with the Gamma Knife, a completely non-invasive procedure, we can achieve the same result. We can treat the tumor and stop it from growing without ever having to make an incision.”
