Revolutionary brain tumour treatment

One of my close relatives passed away after fighting with brain tumor for quite sometime. An operation was never considered because the illness was detected unfortunately at quite a late stage.

Was really intrigued with this relatively new method of brain tumor treatment, which involves the gamma knife. This revolutionary medical equipment allows neurosurgeons to perform brain surgery without invasive surgery, that is, without having to cut into a patient skull. It involves using highly targeted radiation to destroy brain tumors.

Unfortunately, due to the fact that this is a relatively new technology, a lot of people including doctors as well as patients are not aware of this non-invasive surgery option.
