Noninvasive brain surgery using Gamma Knife®

Ascension Alexian Brothers Gamma Knife® Center in Elk Grove Village, IL, provides advanced cancer care.

Ascension Alexian Brothers Gamma Knife Center offers the most advanced form of non-invasive brain surgery, the Leksell Gamma Knife® Perfexion™. This sophisticated medical device is not actually a knife at all; the Gamma Knife Perfexion is a stereotactic radiosurgical instrument that delivers a single high dose of precisely focused radiation to the target, while leaving surrounding healthy tissue virtually unharmed. Learn more about Ascension Alexian Brothers Gamma Knife Center.

Gamma Knife radiosurgery has proven effective for patients with benign or malignant brain tumors, arteriovenous malformation (AVM), trigeminal neuralgia and other functional problems. It can be used as a primary or supplemental treatment option in combination with surgery, chemotherapy and other forms of radiation therapy. See other conditions treated with Gamma Knife.

This treatment is non-invasive, painless, and is typically done in a single outpatient visit, with patients usually resuming pre-treatment activities in two to three days. Gamma Knife treatment is usually substantially less costly than conventional open skull brain surgery and is covered by most major insurance companies, including Medicare.
