What is Gamma Knife?
Gamma Knife is a very direct type of radiation therapy that relies, with pinpoint specificity, on powerful beams of gamma radiation to cure brain lesions. Despite the title, Gamma Knife surgery requires neither conventional surgery nor a real knife. Since the effect is close to that of a surgical operation, Gamma Knife is named “surgery”.Radiosurgery using the Gamma Knife can be useful in treating cancers, malformations of the blood vessels, and nervous disorders.
Who should get it done?
For adults and infants with small to medium brain cancers, irregular blood vessel formations called arteriovenous malformations, seizures, trigeminal neuralgia, a nerve disease that induces severe pain, and other neurological disorders, the Gamma Knife is effective radiation therapy.
When is this process carried out?
Gamma Knife is most commonly used by specialist neurosurgeons to treat the following brain conditions:
- Primary brain tumors
- Neuroma in acoustics
- Vestibular Schwannoma
- Obsessive-compulsive disorder
Your doctor will explain to you the treatment and give you the chance to ask questions. To grant the medical staff permission to operate, you will be asked to sign a consent form. If something is not apparent, please read the form carefully and ask questions.
How long treatment takes?
Generally, the Gamma Knife treatment is done on an outpatient procedure, but by the end of the day, you can go back home.
