Stereotactic Radiosurgery (SRS)

When it comes to fighting tumors and lesions in the brain and body, precision is paramount. Stereotactic Radiosurgery (SRS) represents a cutting-edge approach to delivering high doses of radiation to precisely targeted areas, offering hope and healing to patients facing a range of conditions.

What is Stereotactic Radiosurgery?

Stereotactic Radiosurgery isn’t surgery in the traditional sense. It’s a non-invasive procedure that uses highly focused radiation beams to treat tumors and lesions with pinpoint accuracy. Unlike conventional surgery, there are no incisions, no anesthesia, and typically no overnight hospital stays. Instead, patients can often return to their daily activities shortly after treatment.

How Does it Work?

Using advanced imaging techniques such as MRI, CT, or angiography, our skilled medical team precisely maps the location of the tumor or lesion. This detailed mapping allows us to deliver radiation with sub-millimeter accuracy, minimizing damage to surrounding healthy tissue. With Stereotactic Radiosurgery, we can deliver a powerful dose of radiation directly to the target area, effectively destroying the tumor or lesion while sparing nearby critical structures.

Conditions Treated with Stereotactic Radiosurgery

Stereotactic Radiosurgery can be used to treat a variety of conditions, including:

  • Brain tumors, both malignant and benign
  • Arteriovenous malformations (AVMs)
  • Trigeminal neuralgia
  • Metastatic cancer lesions in the brain or spine
  • Spinal tumors
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Essential tremor
  • And more
