    Brain cancers can begin in the brain, like glioblastomas, or can be the result of cancer metastasis (for example, lung cancer spreading to the brain). Brain cancer treatment is individualized depending on the type of cancer and may include external beam radiation, chemotherapy or Gamma Knife® surgery.

    The future of brain cancer treatment is here at UK. Patients with brain and spinal cord tumors may benefit from Gamma Knife treatment, a revolutionary method of brain surgery that allows our specialists to operate on the brain without even breaking the skin. Surgical oncologists work closely with Kentucky Neuroscience Institute neuro-oncologists, pathologists and radiologists to provide patients with the most advanced treatment for a successful outcome.
