About Gamma Knife*
Gamma Knife* is a non-invasive stereotactic radiosurgery platform that involves no incision.
Gamma Knife uses up to 192 precisely focused beams of radiation to control malignant and non-malignant tumours, as well as vascular disorders in the brain, without harming surrounding healthy tissue. In a rising number of instances, Gamma Knife is used as an alternate option to surgery or whole brain radiation.
