  • Treatment

  • The gamma knife is a precise and powerful tool for treating certain tumors and vascular malformations in the brain, effectively and without surgery. It delivers a single, high-dose of gamma radiation which affects the diseased tissue, while sparing nearby normal tissue.

    The Gamma Knife centers have established relationships with the Karolinska Institute, where gamma knife technology was pioneered.
