What is Gamma Knife Radiosurgery?
Gamma Knife is not a knife in the normal sense of the word
No incisions are made in your head Instead, very precisely focused beams of radiation are directed to the treatment area in the brain, optimised to hit only the target without damaging surrounding healthy tissue.
It offers a safe and effective treatment for more than 80,000 patients worldwide every year. The treatment procedure is simple, painless and straightforward.
Our Centres deliver highly specialised, non invasive, precision targeted radiation treatment of previously inoperable brain tumours. We do this, using Elekta’s Leksell Gamma Knife system, the Gold Standard for Radiosurgical treatment to complex brain lesions.
The Queen Square centre is located within the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery, part of University College of London Hospitals’ NHS Foundation Trust, and The Thornbury Radiosurgery Centre is located at the Circle/BMI Thornbury Hospital in Sheffield.
