Microsurgery to Treat Metastatic Brain Cancer
Microsurgery is open surgery using specialized instruments and an operating microscope. During microsurgery, our surgeons utilize neuronavigation, “GPS” technology for critical brain structures and pathways, and neurophysiological monitoring, which tracks the electrical activity within your brain to make sure brain function and response remain intact during your operation. The use of these technologies contributes to our proven track record of safer, more effective procedures.
Gamma Knife Radiosurgery to Treat Metastatic Brain Cancer
Gamma Knife is a non-invasive, painless radiosurgery technology that destroys inoperable lesions and tumors by delivering targeted, concentrated radiation doses to your tumor(s) while sparing healthy tissue. Cyberknife is an outpatient procedure that requires only one to five treatment sessions.
