Gamma Knife vs. CyberKnife
Gamma Knife is the gold standard of radiosurgery for:
- Brain cancer
- Metastatic brain tumors
- Benign brain tumors
- Brain abnormalities, such as arteriovenous malformation (AVM)
Other types of radiosurgery, such as the CyberKnife® Robotic Radiosurgery System, may claim to be as effective and efficient. But it isn’t true.
As one of the most experienced Gamma Knife treatment teams at one of the most active Gamma Knife centers in the U.S., we at Wake Forest Baptist know that Gamma Knife is the leader in noninvasive brain surgery. Its success has been documented for 5 decades, with more than 350,000 cases treated worldwide, providing data for more than 2,000 articles in medical publications.
Gamma Knife has raised the bar for all other types of radiosurgery, including CyberKnife. For example:
