Greater precision is accomplished by use of our Stereotactic frame and sophisticated treatment planning. Our experience is critical.

Stereotactic Radiosurgery allows us more confidence in delivery of treatment and greater likelihood of decreasing the radiation field, thus reducing radiation exposure to healthy tissue.

Further, Hypo-Fractionation means fewer doses of such radiation is given but each one has greater intensity - which should mean greater effectiveness based upon known radio-biologic principles. Thus, select patients have the potential advantage of Stereotactic Radiosurgery combined with the treatment benefits of Hypo-fractionated therapy.

Since Stereotactic Radiosurgery is so different from standard radiation, chemotherapy or surgery, a separate definition of tumor control has been developed over the years. Tumor control means that the area - or tumor - that has been targeted wil possibly cease to grow, will shrink or will disappear completely and that further treatment to that area will be unnecessary. The likelihood of local control is very high with Stereotactic Radiosurgery. This number usually ranges from 80 to 85%.
