Indications Treated with Gamma Knife Treatment

Hypophysis Adenomas

Hypophysis adenomas are treated by Gamma Knife Perfexion. Along with primary tumors, in residual and recurrent tumors, treatment could be planned by protecting the optical nerves, stalk and normal tissues.Cavernous sinus involvement, requiring an extremely risky surgery, is the first preference especially in case of carotid filtrating adenomas.


Arising from cerebral cortex, mostly benign tumors that reside in risky areas for surgical removal. It is possible to treat these tumors by Gamma Knife Perfexion Radiosurgery method. In large meningioma cases, following the maximum surgical resection, application of Gamma Knife Perfexion Radiosurgery on the risky located tumors has been a popular method in recent years, and accepted as low complication- method. In addition, it is actively used in treatment of recurrent meningioma cases.

Trigeminal Neuralgia

The treatment of trigeminal neuralgia causing serious facial pain could be done through Gamma Knife Perfexion Radiosurgery method. The other therapy methods intended to this disease (microvascular decompression, percutaneous retrogasserian RF and compression, local injections etc.) are applied in Group Florence Nightingale.
