A number of patients have been treated at the Gamma Knife at QSRC  from Kuwait and across Europe symbolising the international reputation of the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosciences as a centre of excellence.

Unlike traditional surgery, Gamma Knife procedures do not involve the use of a ‘knife’ or scalpel and the skull never has to be opened up. It works by targeting a single dose of radiation precisely on the tumour and this minimises damage to surrounding healthy tissue.

The centre is located at the world renowned National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosciences, the UK’s largest dedicated neurological and neurosurgical hospital treating over 6,000 inpatients, 120,000 outpatients and 8,000 day cases each year.
