Check Out the Gamma Knife for Brain Tumors

Sponsored Post

Have you heard about the newest form of brain tumor treatment? It's called the gamma knife. I've seen it mentioned on TV, but I didn't really understand the benefits, until now.

There's a great site that explains the use and benefits of the Gamma Knife. To my understanding, it's a method of radiating brain tumors, to eliminate them from the brain. It's noninvasive, and the procedure takes place in one session.

The process holds the head stationary and then focuses radiation at the tumor from all angles simultaneously. This helps prevent excess radiation to the rest of the body and puts the radiation where it is needed: the tumor itself.
