Gamma Knife : A non-surgical brain tumor treatment with 90% success rates

Brain tumor is a cancerous or non-cancerous mass or growth of abnormal cells in the brain. The human skull is a very rigid structure; any kind of growth inside such a restricted space can cause a serious health hazard. Gamma Knife surgery is one of the latest treatments for a brain tumor. It is a type of radiation therapy. Gamma knife surgery is very beneficial in treating many conditions which were considered to be non-treatable in earlier days due to their life-threating effects or non-accessibility; such as small intracranial AVMs or cavernous angiomas; benign tumors including: acoustic neuromas, meningiomas, and pituitary adenomas craniopharyngiomas; tumors located at the base of the skull; metastatic brain lesions & other partially resected tumors; Parkinson's disease or other movement disorders, and many more.

Gamma Knife Surgery is a very precise form of radiation therapy. In this radiation treatment, 192 beams of highly focused cobalt gamma radiation focus with pinpoint accuracy to treat brain tumors, arteriovenous malformations, and brain dysfunctions.

There are many advantages of gamma knife radiosurgery in India over the traditional surgical procedure.

As a result, the recovery time is also reduced and they can get a normal life within days with little or no rehabilitative services.
