Stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) utilizes many focused radiation beams to treat malignant tumors and benign conditions (trigeminal neuralgia, arteriovenous malformations) in the brain, lungs, liver, prostate, spine and other parts of the body.
SRS is non-invasive which means there is no incisions. Instead, stereotactic radiosurgery high doses of radiation to ablate or “burn out” the target while minimizing the impact on the surrounding healthy tissue. Stereotactic radiosurgery works by damaging the DNA of the targeted cells which prevents these cells from duplicating.
Stereotactic radiosurgery of the brain and spine is performed 1-5 daily treatments. Body radiosurgery is used to treat lung, liver, adrenal and other soft tissue tumors, and treatment typically involves multiple (3-5) sessions.Leave a reply
