Stereotactic Radiosurgery (SRS)

Madison WI Radiation Oncology Stereostatic RadiosurgeryStereotactic Radiosurgery (SRS) uses Turville Bay’s computer guided radiation therapy system, directing highly focused beams of radiation into tumors and other abnormalities of the head and neck. SRS is a non-surgical method and utilizes a LINAC Scalpel or Stereotactic linear accelerator. It delivers high doses of radiation to a specific area within the head and brain. The entire treatment dose in the Radiosurgery treatment is delivered in a single fraction directly to the area of the tumor or abnormality. Very little radiation reaches normal brain structures or tissue, and there is virtually no recovery time. Radiosurgery is ideal for treating arteriovenous malformations, acoustic neuromas, and tumors located deep within the brain.
