Radiosurgery is a form of radiation that may be used as a standalone treatment option or in conjunction with surgery. Multiple radiation beams are used to shrink or treat the tumor. This procedure is non-invasive and very precise, allowing for surrounding healthy tissues to be left unaffected. During the procedure, local anesthetic is used to allow the doctor to place the patient’s head in a headframe. The frame is positioned on the patient’s head using four sterile pins to ensure the patient’s head doesn’t move to ensure the correct area of the brain is being radiated. If radiosurgery is recommended, a radiation oncologist will be involved in treatment. The radiation oncologist will often consult with the patient as well as perform the radiosurgery.
