Specialized center for radiosurgery

Without using traditional surgery, we provide treatment for our patients with difficult tumors. At our Gamma Knife® Center, we can treat affected areas without causing harm to the surrounding healthy tissue using radiosurgery.

Radiosurgery increases the precision of radiation delivery to the area, expands the treatment range to include lesions in the base of the skull and shortens treatment time while improving comfort for patients.

For more information about the procedure, a physician referral or consultation, please call (210) 575-6575.
