Gamma Knife® Same-Day Brain Tumor Treatment

Central Florida’s Destination for Gamma Knife Radiosurgery

Gamma Knife® is the gold standard in minimally invasive, precision radiosurgery for specific disorders of the brain. And there’s only one place in Central Florida where you can find this groundbreaking treatment: the AdventHealth Neuroscience Institute.

We have performed more than 5,000 Gamma Knife procedures since 1996, devoting decades of expertise to helping patients heal from brain tumors and lesions in body, mind and spirit.

What Is Gamma Knife?

Advanced technology, in the hands of compassionate and caring experts, inspires hope. With the Leksell Gamma Knife® Perfexion™ radiosurgery system, tumors and brain lesions once considered inoperable are now highly treatable, often in less than one hour.

Using precise beams of radiation, the Gamma Knife system targets multiple brain lesions during a single session and leaves the surrounding healthy tissue untouched. With the Gamma Knife procedure, there are no incisions or anesthesia, so patients can go home the same day and often resume normal activities the day after surgery.

How Gamma Knife Benefits Patients

The Gamma Knife system focuses beams of gamma radiation directly on tumors and lesions in the brain. Its precision maximizes surgical accuracy, safety and patient comfort. Other benefits of the Gamma Knife system include:

  • Eliminated risk of bleeding and infection
  • Minimal discomfort
  • No anesthesia required
  • No incision
  • Pinpoint accuracy

The Gamma Knife system has been used for more than half a million successful surgeries around the world. At the AdventHealth Neuroscience Institute, we’re honored to be the only facility in Central Florida that offers this life-saving treatment.
