Brain Tumor Frequently Asked Questions

Premier Health providers answer frequently asked questions about brain tumors. 

What is stereotactic radiosurgery?

Stereotactic radiosurgery is a type of radiation where the radiation field is shaped to match the exact size and shape of the tumor. With precise planning, we locate the tumor and radiate just the tumor and not the tissue around it. Stereotactic radiosurgery is called surgery because the radiation is so precise, not because it involves cutting.
