The Gamma Knife® isn't really a knife at all, but radiosurgery - a non-invasive neurosurgical procedure that uses powerful doses of radiation to target and treat diseased brain tissue while leaving surrounding tissue intact. This state-of-the art technology allows physicians to operate on brain lesions often considered inoperable. Gamma Knife surgery treatment offers new hope for patients with brain tumors, vascular malformations and functional disorders.
The Florida Hospital Gamma Knife Center provides radiation treatment with the Leksell Gamma Knife© 4C, which is the most technologically advanced non-invasive brain surgery technique available today. Florida Hospital is the only facility in Central Florida using this robotic-assisted, state-of-the-art model to operate on brain lesions and tumors.
