The Queen Square Radiosurgery Centre –  treating brain tumours and disorders

The Queen Square Radiosurgery Centre provides a Gamma Knife radiosurgery service for NHS and private patients treating brain tumours and other intracranial indications. The Gamma Knife is not a knife at all, but a highly sophisticated, non-invasive device that focuses high-energy gamma radiation on the affected area inside the brain. Gamma Knife radiosurgery is an effective, non-invasive alternative to traditional surgery.

We are one of two NHS England National Centres of Excellence who provide specialist care and support for patients including those with rare and complex conditions. The centre enjoys a significant number of strengths from the well established integration with other areas of expertise within the University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (UCLH) and is located at The National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery, the UK’s largest dedicated neurological and neurosurgical hospital.
