Some Knives Are Sharper Than Others

Riverside, in partnership with University of Virginia Health System offers a state-of-the-art Radiosurgery Center located on the campus of Riverside Regional Medical Center just off I-64 in Newport News, Virginia.

Gamma Knife is the only proven, well-established technology recognized worldwide as the preferred treatment method for certain types of brain tumors and other neurological diseases. The Leksell Gamma Knife at the Chesapeake Regional, Riverside and University of Virginia Radiosurgery Center is one of the most advanced forms of radiosurgery currently being used. 

Some knifes are sharper than others.

There are other "all in one" radiosurgery technologies used in treating some types of brain tumors. The International Radiosurgery Stereotactic Association Association (IRSA) an independent organization providing patient support and education worldwide, provides helpful evidence based recommendations for patients. IRSA recommends using technology such as Gamma Knife specially designed for treating the brain.
