Brain Tumor

Radiation Treatment for Brain Tumors

Radiation is a form of cancer treatment that uses high-energy X-rays to kill cancer cells and slow or stop tumors from growing. Radiation is a common treatment option that we use either together with or instead of surgery.

Gamma Knife Radiation

At the Comprehensive Cancer Center, we offer Gamma Knife stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS), which is one of the most advanced and accurate radiation treatment technologies available. It delivers radiation therapy very precisely to a specific target within the brain – all in a single session.

Careful Planning Leads to More Accurate Treatment

A multidisciplinary team of neurosurgeons, radiation oncologists, and radiation physicists work together to carefully design a treatment plan that focuses radiation beams on the targeted tissue, which minimizes the radiation effects to surrounding healthy brain tissue.

Gamma Knife SRS is a treatment of choice for certain kinds of benign and malignant brain tumors.
