Advanced Radiosurgery Treatment at Swedish Helps People with Brain Tumors
Swedish Medical Center is one of only two facilities in Colorado, and one of seven locations in the western United States, to offer stereotactic radiosurgery. Also called Gamma Knife® radiosurgery (the trademark name for the technology), this treatment concentrates hundreds of highly focused radiation beams to target tumors inside the brain. The radiation damages cancer cells, preventing them from multiplying and growing. Radiosurgery is a knifeless treatment, meaning there's no cutting of the skull.
