GammaKnife ® and CyberKnife®
This is a technique that uses highly focused beams of radiation to destroy a tumour or an abnormal knot of blood vessels. The treatment is thus performed without the need for open surgery and is usually given as a single outpatient treatment. It is typically delivered using the GammaKnife® or CyberKnife®. Unfortunately it is not possible to treat all tumours with this technique but when suitable, the London Neurosurgery Partnership is fortunate to have several neurosurgeons that are highly expert in the use of both the CyberKnife® and GammaKnife®.
