The Gamma Knife and Radiotherapy Center Krefeld specializes in the surgical treatment of benign and malignant tumors of the brain and adjacent organs, as well as in the treatment of vascular malformations.The center is equipped with the state-of-the-art radiosurgery equipment. 

Founded in 1998, the center enjoys an excellent reputation among medical specialists and patients from all over the world. Since its opening, more than 3,500 outpatient and inpatient radiosurgical operations with the Gamma Knife and more than 7,000 successful therapy courses have been performed here. Thanks to the high accuracy and effectiveness of the intervention, the Gamma Knife method is recognized as the gold standard of modern surgery. Treatment is provided within a single procedure. Before the procedure, either tomography or angiography is used to precisely determined the area to be exposed (for this purpose a "stereotactic frame" with a coordinate system is used). These coordinates are exactly observed during the Gamma Knife irradiation, which eliminates errors when directing the beam.

The peculiarity of this clinic lies in the innovative technologies of radiotherapy, which make it possible not to irradiate hippocampus, which is primarily responsible for memory and is part of the limbic system associated with the regulation of emotional responses. 

Thanks to two cutting-edge irradiation devices, namely the Perfexion Gamma Knife and the Axesse Linear Accelerator, in the field of radiotherapy, the center offers treatment of metastases and tumors.They help provide high-precision and most sparing therapy.
