Stereotactic Radiosurgery Program

Stereotactic Radiosurgery Program

Stereotactic radiosurgery treats brain and spine tumors, vascular malformations and facial pain from trigeminal neuralgia without surgery. A team of neurosurgeons, radiation oncologists and physicists deliver precisely focused radiation beams to head and spine lesions, destroying them with minimal damage to normal tissue.

CyberKnife is a state-of-the-art technology that does this using an advanced robotic device. CyberKnife  enables an increasing number of conditions – including those once considered to be inoperable and those for which other therapies are ineffective – to be successfully treated without incisions … and with little or no pain. These include acoustic neuromameningiomaspituitary tumorspineal tumorsbrain metastases, glial and astrocytic tumors, skull base tumors, other benign and malignant tumors, arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) and neurological disorders such as trigeminal neuralgia.

Altair Health’s Dr. Yaron A. Moshel, director  of the Gerald J.
