STEREOTACTIC RADIOSURGERY WITH GAMMA KNIFE - WHAT IS IT?

Radiosurgery is a method of high-precision irradiation of intracranial pathologic focus with a large dose of radiation in a single session by using stereotactic technique. Gamma Knife plays a special role in neurosurgical methods of treatment, being a highly specialized tool for non-invasive treatment of a wide variety of intracranial pathologies (oncology, vascular malformations, trigeminal neuralgia).
