The Gamma Knife contains up to 201 cobalt-60 sources of approximately 30 curies each, placed in a circular array in a heavily shielded unit.

The unit directs gamma radiation to a target point. Such target points selected in the brain can be placed at the center of the radiation focus, allowing a tumoricidal radiation dosage to be delivered in one treatment session. The Gamma Knife has proved effective for thousands of patients with benign or malignant brain tumors, vascular malformations, pain or other functional problems (Parkinson’s Disease, Trigeminal Neuralgia , Tremors ).
Gamma Knife Surgery: Minimally Invasive, Exceptionally Effective
Gamma Knife surgery represents one of the most advanced means available to manage brain tumors, arteriovenous malformations, Pain or Movement disorders (Parkinsons’s Disease, Trigeminal Neuralgia, Tremors ).
The procedure is unique because, with the Gamma Knife, no surgical incision is performed to expose the target.
Gamma Knife :Non-Invasive Brain Surgery
The Gamma Knife isn't really a knife at all, but Radiosurgery - a non-invasive neurosurgical procedure that uses powerful doses of radiation to target and treat diseased brain tissue while leaving surrounding tissue intact.

This state-of-the art technology allows physicians to operate on brain lesions often considered inoperable. Gamma Knife treatment offers new hope for patients with brain tumors, vascular malformations and functional disorders.
