    Noninvasive care

    Gamma Knife's technology allows patients to avoid the risks of traditional surgery as well an extended hospital stay. Our patients can return to the same level of activity they're used to within 24 hours of Gamma Knife surgery, which means you spend less time in the hospital. Our goal is to return patients to a normal, healthy life as quickly as possible and Gamma Knife's noninvasive surgery makes it possible.
