The Gamma Knife and Radiotherapy Center Krefeld specializes in the stereotactic radiosurgical treatment of benign and malignant tumors. The peculiarity of this clinic lies in the innovative technologies of targeted radiotherapy, thanks to which healthy tissues can be completely removed from the radiation zone. At the same time, tumors and their metastases are removed with an accuracy of up to 0,3 mm. It is important that in the treatment of brain tumors, ionizing radiation does not damage the hippocampus, which is responsible for memory and the ability to experience emotions. Due to the high accuracy and effectiveness of the intervention, the Gamma Knife method is recognized as the gold standard of modern surgery. A single procedure, which is usually outpatient, without hospitalization, is enough to provide effective treatment.
