Brain Tumor Treatment Awareness

I have not known anyone who has had to deal with a brain tumor but there are many in the world who have. After a review of the sites. I now know that
radiosurgery is the best way to deal with it...specifically the Gamma Knife surgery. It is the choice of neurosurgeons worldwide and over half a million people have been treated with Gamma Knife surgery. It is preferred because it sets the bar for accuracy. The brain is so delicate, large movements can be not so good. Radiation is also delivered right to a single point...right where it needs to go. In addition the head is mobilized so that everything is to pin point accuracy. With the type of specialized surgery that it is, patients can actually go home the same day.

For more information about the gamma knife please check out all of your patient options to see if this is the best option for you. In additon be sure to check out all the reasons why doctors prefer it and the comparisons to other treatments out there. Information will help you make the right decision. You can never have too much of that.

Gamma Knife Saves Lives


You can chase a butterfly all over the field and never catch it. But if you sit quietly in the grass it will come and sit on your shoulder.
