Gamma Knife radiosurgery aims to treat cancer without using a scalpel. It is not necessary to open the skull as this operation involves using an accurate and intense radiation. If there is a high risk, radiosurgery can be employed to cure brain tumors that are smaller than 3 cm.
The Gamma Knife is the ultimate radiosurgery machine. It transmits beams of gamma rays to the brain tumor. The duration of this intervention is between 10 minutes and 2 hours and this relies on the extent of the tumour. Nothing can be felt by the patient who is conscious during the procedure. Cancer cells are destroyed through this machine. A scar will remain in the brain after the surgery, but the tumour will definitely disappear. It is important to note that deformities of blood vessels and abnormalities that exist at the level of the brain can be healed through Gamma Knife radiosurgery.
Neurosurgery, that involves a cut at the level of the scalp and an incision in the brain, is more dangerous than gamma knife radiosurgery. The following cases need this type of therapy:
