Now at Valley: The Leksell Gamma Knife Icon

The Valley Hospital is pleased to be one of the first hospitals in the United States to offer the Leksell Gamma Knife Icon — noninvasive, radiosurgical technology for the treatment of benign and malignant brain tumors and neurological conditions in the brain.

The Gamma Knife Icon enables Valley’s neuro-oncology team to treat virtually any location in the brain with ultrahigh precision, minimal effect to healthy tissue and, for select patients, an alternative to the head frame used in most gamma knife treatments.

Patients with certain types of benign and malignant brain tumors or patients whose medical conditions preclude surgery may benefit from Gamma Knife Icon treatment.
