Gamma Knife & Radiosurgery Center
Gamma Knife Radiosurgery
The Gamma Knife Center at Barrow Neurological Institute at Dignity Health St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center, located in Phoenix, Arizona, offers one of the safest and most effective alternatives to surgery for certain brain disorders. Gamma Knife radiosurgery can be used to treat benign tumors, malignant tumors, vascular abnormalities, and functional disorders such as trigeminal neuralgia. It manages these conditions noninvasively, allowing patients to go home the same day as treatment without the pain and risk of complications associated with traditional surgery.
Cyberknife technology uses image-guided robotics to deliver surgically precise radiation to destroy intracranial and extracranial lesions, such as spinal and soft tissue tumors, without the need for open surgery. Cyberknife is non-invasive and can treat tumors in many parts of the body. CyberKnife enables access to previously unreachable tumors and is suited for many patients otherwise diagnosed as inoperable.
