What is Radiosurgery?

It refers to a technique that uses small doses of radiation to eliminate a tumor and other possible damage to different organs and tissues. Radiosurgery is prescribed in order to minimize tumor volume, preventing the development and multiplication of cancer cells.

Radiosurgery is used to successfully treat brain tumors, other neurological conditions, and different types of cancer, as it is a minimally invasive and safe technique.

At ABC Medical Center, doctors from different specialties work together to treat cancer, so a highly specialized team of surgeons, oncologists, and radiologist oncologists will treat you with the warmth and humane treatment that sets us apart.
