The most refined tool for the treatment of the human brain is now available to patients at the Gamma Knife Center of New Mexico at Lovelace Medical Center. This clinically proven technology minimizes pain and represents a true breakthrough in hope for patients who are candidates for stereotactic brain surgery – surgery without a scalpel. Lovelace Medical Center is the only hospital in New Mexico offering patients radiosurgery using the Leksell Gamma Knife® .
The revolutionary Gamma Knife is not a knife at all, but a leading-edge instrument that precisely focuses radiation to target and treat brain metastases, trigeminal neuralgia and arteriovenous malformations. Other conditions the Gamma Knife may treat include acoustic neuromas, gliomas, meningiomas, metastatic tumors, pituitary adenomas and vestibular schwannoma. More than 750,000 successful Gamma Knife procedures have been performed worldwide.
Because not every patient is a candidate for Gamma Knife radiosurgery, we convene a multidisciplinary conference of physicians each week to review and discuss potential cases and make recommendations for treatment. If you are a physician and would like one of your patients evaluated, or if you're a patient and would like to learn more about the Gamma Knife Center of New Mexico, please call 505.727.8288 or toll free 866.35.GAMMA.
