Stereotactic Radiosurgery (SRS) with Novalis and Gamma Knife
Many brain conditions, such as brain tumors, vascular conditions and trigeminal neuralgia can be treated with single session of targeted radiation to the brain called stereotactic radiosurgery. This state-of-the-art procedure does not involve any surgical incision and is completely non-invasive and painless. It is a single session, outpatient procedure performed in a setting comfortable to the patient, where highly specific radiation beams target the pathology in the brain without affecting normal brain tissue or body tissue, using a special robot and sophisticated computer algorithms. Furthermore, it does not produce any side effects the same way traditional radiation therapy does since it only affects the abnormal part of the brain, and in that way it has a similar effect to surgery, hence the name “radiosurgery”.
