Gamma Knife was given a bad name…literally.
At The Valley Gamma Knife Center, we prefer to call it Knife(less)™.
Gamma Knife is not a knife at all.
Gamma Knife radiosurgery uses 192 focused beams of radiation to deliver targeted treatment to the desired area, leaving less healthy brain tissue harmed. The procedure takes place in an outpatient setting without the need for general anesthesia, resulting in less recovery time. The maximum amount of Gamma Knife sessions is five, but some patients will require less treatment. Sometimes less is more.
