Before coming across this article on radiosurgery, I (the ignorant) has SO LITTLE (or near none) idea of Gamma Knife surgery... Have YOU, ever heard of radiosurgery?
Well, Leksell Gamma Knife is the only, let me repeat, ONLY stereotactic radiosurgery system specifically approved for treating brain tumors... It has high accuracy (which is of course important, to enhance confidence and of course, patients' safety), it reduces excess radiation and eliminates x-ray to the brain, and this itself is enough to explain why leading neurosurgeons choose Gamma Knife surgery for their patients... It is the brain we are talking about here, who wouldn't be afraid if all the above mentioned points were not met? It also give you more confidence that this radiosurgery has been used to treat over half a million people...
