The NorthShore Neurological Institute features highly skilled specialists who employ the most advanced techniques for treating patients with a wide range of brain and spine tumors. Stereotactic radiosurgery expands the depth and breadth of treatment options our practitioners can offer to patients to treat sometimes hard-to-reach areas of the brain. This technology allows our neurosurgical experts to team with radiation oncologists and other health professionals at NorthShore to precisely target various tumors and other conditions of the brain and spine with highly potent doses of radiation. This minimally invasive outpatient technique preserves surrounding healthy tissue while killing tumor cells. Reducing and/or eliminating both benign and malignant tumors, stereotactic radiosurgery offers patients excellent treatment results—especially when conventional surgery is not an option.
As part of our commitment to state-of-the-art care, NorthShore has invested in the latest stereotactic radiosurgery technology on the market. Among its features are increased precision for zeroing in on tumors, frameless fractionated radiosurgery treatment for enhanced comfort, and shorter treatment times that improve the patient experience.
