Day case procedures
Our gamma knife treatments are done as day case procedures and friends and family can attend with you. Most treatments often only take a few hours, with you are able to leave the hospital only a short while after they’re complete. The treatments themselves are performed by a dedicated team of professionals, made up of Consultant Neurosurgeons, Radiographers, Medical Physicists and HCAs, all of which are committed to providing you with the unsurpassed care and a paramount experience during your stay.
Follow up appointments
Follow up appointments and scans can either be conducted through Thornbury Hospital, or done closer to home, guaranteeing you the most suitable approach for yourselves. Our Consultants can then be involved in any correspondence of your continued care and be on hand to review any follow up investigations that may be needed.
