Most patients get treated within 2 weeks
Below are some of the cases we've treated and the results of those procedures. In June of 2002 we started with our first patients and were quite conservative in our approach. Based upon positive outcomes and seeing the resulting quality of life improvements for some very sick patients, our team has steadily, although within the confines of good medicine, increased the application of gamma knife technology. The focus is always on what is best for the patient - what will provide this patient with an extended life span and a better quality of life.
