What Can Gamma Knife Treat?
With success stories growing by the day, Gamma Knife is becoming the brain disorder treatment of choice for its effectiveness in targeting a broad range of issues with less risk (and lower cost). And the research is exciting: Gamma Knife studies consistently demonstrate a 90 percent tumor control rate, and a total obliteration rate of 80 percent for AVMs over two years.
At the Gamma Knife Center, our software-guided radiosurgery approach is often able to treat brain disorder cases where conventional surgery is impossible or too risky.
Here are some of the brain disorder types Gamma Knife may be useful in treating:
Metastatic Brain Tumors
Primary Brain Tumors
AVMs (Arteriovenous Malformations)
Essential Tremor and Parkinson's Tremor
The uniformity and specificity of the Gamma Knife coupled with its unique minimally-invasive approach makes it particularly appropriate for an increasing role in neurosurgery. The range of vascular malformations and tumors currently treated with Gamma Knife continues to grow. As the ability to better visualize brain anomalies and functional disorders improves through advances in diagnostic imaging and functional mapping of the brain, applications for the Gamma Knife will continue to expand.
