Gamma Knife® Surgery and Neurosurgery
The Leksell Gamma Knife® is used to deliver radiotherapy with precision to treat a variety of neurological problems involving the brain. Most of the conditions treated are tumours – both benign and malignant – but in addition tangles of arteries and veins (arterio-venous malformations –AVMs) can be obliterated and the excruciating facial pain known as trigeminal neuralgia can be relieved.
