Monmouth Medical Center recently opened the Gamma Knife Center offering Leksell Gamma Knife, a high-tech non-invasive brain surgery tool, to treat conditions previously considered inaccessible or inoperable.
Monmouth Medical Center is the only hospital in Monmouth and Ocean Counties to offer Gamma Knife.
The Gamma Knife is not a knife, but a highly developed treatment system that directs multiple beams of gamma radiation, to converge, with pinpoint accuracy, on a targeted abnormality within the brain. The Gamma Knife’s precision makes it appropriate for both pediatric and adult patients. Supported by well-documented research, evaluation and clinical use, Gamma Knife surgery is ideal for treating deep-seated brain tumors, functional and neurological disorders and vascular malformations.
