Gamma Knife® is a form of stereotactic radiosurgery
that is dedicated to treat various lesions and neurological issues of the brain.
Dr. Shedden has well over 23 years experience with the Leksell Gamma Knife®. In fact, he has used every generation of machine built by Leksell since its introduction in the 1980’s. It is used to successfully treat conditions like:
- involves no incisions, so there is no direct surgical intervention into the brain
- rarely requires general anesthesia, eliminating the risk of anesthesia-related side effects
- results in little to no patient discomfort, and patients can return to normal activities soon, sometimes within one day
The Gamma Knife® offers a non-invasive alternative when conventional brain surgery isn’t an option and dramatically decreases the physical trauma and risks that are associated with conventional surgery.
