SRS

Stereotactic Radio Surgery (SRS) uses many precisely focused radiation beams to treat tumors and other problems in the brain, neck and other parts of the body. It is not surgery in the traditional sense because there’s no incision. Instead, SRS uses 3-D imaging to target high doses of radiation to the affected area with minimal impact on the surrounding healthy tissue. Like other forms of radiation, Stereotactic Radio Surgery works by damaging the DNA of the targeted cells. The affected cells then lose the ability to reproduce, which causes tumors to shrink. Stereotactic Radio Surgery of the brain and spine is typically completed in a single session.
