There are various treatments for metastatic brain tumors. Each treatment evaluated on an individual basis and is done to prolong the life of an individual, alleviate symptoms and improve brain function while causing as little trauma as possible. The treatment will greatly depend on the location of the tumor and the overall health of the individual.

Gamma Knife radiosurgery is a non-surgical, painless and effective treatment for small to medium size brain metastases that can achieve long term tumor control. It treats the tumor by a targeted dose of radiation to treat the abnormal tissue while leaving the healthy tissue unaffected. Patients go home the same day and allow patients to resume normal activity usually the same day.
