Our surgeons are experts in using Gamma Knife® radiosurgery to care for a range of neurological conditions.
At NYU Langone's Center for Advanced Radiosurgery, our team of specialists use the Leksell Gamma Knife® Icon™, the most technologically advanced robotic radiosurgical method available today, to treat patients who come to us from around the world.
Conditions suitable for Gamma Knife® radiosurgery include acoustic neuroma, arteriovenous malformations, brain metastases, cavernous malformations, chordomas and chondrosarcoma, cluster headache, cranial nerve schwannomas, gliomas and other brain tumors, meningioma, movement disorders, nasopharyngeal cancers, obsessive-compulsive disorder, pineal region tumors, pituitary adenomas and craniopharyngiomas, and trigeminal neuralgia.
Gamma Knife® radiosurgery is performed by a team of highly specialized neurosurgeons, radiation oncologists, nurse practitioners, and radiation physicists. As leaders in the field, we are an internationally recognized center for training and research and we offer professional training courses in Gamma Knife® radiosurgery.
Clinical excellence and safety are our highest priorities. A major focus of our research is on clinical outcomes for patients with benign or malignant brain tumors, as well as the development of novel imaging strategies to evaluate radiosurgery outcomes.
NYU Langone experts have co-developed and installed the first comprehensive prospective patient registry for radiosurgery outcomes research. Read more about Gamma Knife® radiosurgery at NYU Langone in our patient guide.
