Information and Inspiration at Recent Gamma Knife Conference

The Valley Hospital’s neurosurgeons, radiation oncologists, physicists and administrators represented the Gamma Knife Center at the 17th International Leksell Gamma Knife Society meeting, held last month in New York City. There, they learned valuable news and updates in the ever-evolving field of gamma knife radiosurgery.

Held every two years, the Leksell Gamma Knife Society conference brings neurosurgeons, radiation oncologists, radiation physicists and others together to share best practices and outcomes in their use of this advanced technology. This year, discussion topics included the use of gamma knife radiosurgery for metastatic tumors, primary malignant brain tumors, benign brain tumors, vascular malformations, trigeminal neuralgia and movement disorders.

Attending conferences such as the Leksell Gamma Knife Society event enables Valley physicians to stay at the forefront of this technology. By learning about the latest applications and outcomes for gamma knife radiosurgery and networking with other experts in the field, our team continues to offer the highest level of care for a variety of medical conditions.

The Gamma Knife Center at Valley is home to the Gamma Knife Perfexion system—advanced technology that offers nonsurgical, noninvasive and targeted treatment for a wide range of cancerous and neurological conditions. Learn more about the benefits of radiosurgery with the Perfexion system.
