What is Gamma Knife radiosurgery?

Gamma Knife procedure uses beams of highly-focused gamma rays to treat small to medium size lesions, usually in the brain.

How does Gamma Knife radiosurgery work?

Radiosurgery distorts or destroys the DNA of tumour cells, causing them to be unable to reproduce and grow. With time the tumour will shrink in size.

During the Procedure

A Gamma Knife procedure can be performed on an outpatient basis or as part of the stay in a hospital. Procedures may vary depending on the condition Commonly, a Gamma Knife procedure follows this process:

  • Patient is asked to remove any clothing, jewellery, hairpins, dentures, or other objects that may interfere with the procedure, and will be made to wear a gown.
  • An intravenous (IV) line will be started in the hand or arm in order to give medications and/or fluids during the procedure.
  • The skin on the head will be cleansed at the locations where the pins for the head frame will be placed.
  • A local anaesthetic will be injected at the head frame pin insertion sites. Once the anaesthetic has taken effect, the head frame will be attached to the head with pins that are inserted into the patient’s skull.
  • After the head frame is attached, patient will undergo brain imaging so that the location of the brain tumour or lesion can be precisely identified for planning the treatment.
  • Once the treatment plan is made, patient will lie down on a sliding table. A special helmet, called a collimator helmet, will be fitted over the head frame.
  • Once the helmet is in place, the table will slide into the Gamma Knife unit.
  • The treatment team will go into another room when the treatment begins & the patient will be observed with a video monitor.
  • The entire treatment session may last from 2-4 hours.

After the Procedure

After the procedure, patient will be observed for a period of time. Follow-up with a Neurosurgeon and/or Radiation Oncologist will be made after approximately 4 to 6 weeks post treatment. Depending on the condition treated, follow-up scans will me made usually after 3 months post treatment.
