What is Sterotactic Radiosurgery (SRS))

Stereotactic radiosurgery (Tomotherapy, Cyberknife or Gamma Knife) uses gamma rays or a linear accelerator, to treat certain kinds of brain tumors and some malformations in the brain’s blood vessels. The treatments are painless and bloodless and, unlike conventional brain surgery, there is no danger of infection. These systems use a linear accelerator to deliver the radiation in arcing paths around the patient’s head.
