You may be given radiosurgery if you are unable to have surgery, for example, if you are elderly or very sick, or to slow down the growth of small, deep brain tumours that are hard to remove during normal surgery. You may also receive radiosurgery after surgery to treat any remaining abnormal tissue.
Radiosurgery can be used to treat:
- Brain tumours and metastases
- Head and neck, and nasopharyngeal tumours
- Pituitary tumours
- Spinal cord tumours
- Eye tumours
