MINIMALLY-INVASIVE BRAIN TUMOR TECHNOLOGY
The NeuroMedical Center’s neurosurgeons and neuro-oncologist are part of a multi-disciplinary team of experts highly trained in stereotactic radiosurgery. Stereotactic radiosurgery is a minimally-invasive approach to treating difficult and hard to reach tumors, such as meningiomas, tumors of the pituitary gland acoustic nerve and spine, as well as recurrent brain tumors. Stereotactic radiosurgery isn’t “surgery” in the traditional sense. Instead, stereotactic radiosurgery allows specialists to focus a high dose of radiation on a pinpointed tumor or tangle of abnormal blood vessels known as an arteriovenous malformation (AVM). Micro-beams of radiation are used only on the part of the brain that truly needs it.
