Stereotactic body radiosurgery offers the possibility of treatment for cancers as diverse as benign and malignant tumors of the brain as well as cancers of the chest, abdomen and pelvis, including those of the lung, mediastinum, lymph nodes, liver, pancreas, kidney, gynecologic and urologic sites. Also treated are melanomas, sarcomas and kidney cancers. The success rate, meaning the control of the cancer in the treated site, is high. The durability of treatment effectiveness in the treated field is usually for the remainder of the patient’s life. Our specialty involves fractionated stereotactic radiosurgery – meaning that the dose is divided into several portions so as to make the technique safer and easier to tolerate.
