Gamma Knife vs. CyberKnife: What’s the Difference?

If you were faced with a choice between Gamma Knife or CyberKnife treatment for a brain tumor or other condition within the head, which would you choose?

Both technologies deliver stereotactic radiosurgery to treat cancerous and noncancerous tumors. But Gamma Knife is highly targeted and designed specifically for tumors in the brain – and when it comes to the brain, precision is critical. Gamma Knife’s long track record as a leader in brain tumor treatment, backed by years of research, makes it the ideal choice for patients.

The Valley Hospital’s Gamma Knife Center chose to invest in the Leksell Gamma Knife Perfexion™ system because it offers a number of distinct advantages for brain tumor treatment when compared to the CyberKnife system. Learn more about the differences between the two technologies.
