Stereotactic Radiotherapy Los Angeles

Stereotactic Radiotherapy (SRT) is a medical procedure that allows noninvasive treatment of benign and malignant tumors. It is used to target lesions in the brain. In addition to cancer, it has also been shown to be beneficial for the treatment of some non-cancerous conditions, including functional disorders such as arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) and trigeminal neuralgia.

Stereotactic radiotherapy operates by directing highly focused beams of ionizing radiation with high precision. It is a technique which is used to ablate, by means of a precise dosage of radiation, intracranial and extracranial tumors and other lesions that could be otherwise inaccessible or inadequate for open surgery. There are many nervous diseases for which conventional surgical treatment is difficult or inadvisable due to deleterious consequences for the patient, such as damage to nearby arteries, nerves, and other vital structures.
