Gamma Knife

About Gamma Knife

The Gamma Knife and its associated computerized treatment planning software enable physicians to locate and irradicate relatively small targets in the head (mostly inside the brain) with extremely high precision. Intense doses of radiation can be given to the targeted area(s) while largely sparing the surrounding tissues. The Gamma Knife can be used for a wide variety of problems.For example, it can be used to treat selected malignant tumors that arise in or spread to the brain (primary brain tumors or metastatic tumors), benign brain tumors (meningiomas, pituitary adenomas, acoustic neuromas), blood vessel defects (arteriovenous malformations) and functional problems (trigeminal neuralgia). Possible future uses are being evaluated for epilepsy and Parkinson's disease. The Gamma Knife is usually unsuitable for targets larger than three or four centimeters in size. Presently Gamma knife trained surgeons are only handful.Cancer Treatment through Gamma Knife is available at Noida, India, Delhi, India and Gurgaon, India. The cost of the surgery through gamma knife depends upon the size of the tumour that is to be operated upon.
