New Stereotactic Radiosurgery Treatment Option for Brain Tumors and Other ConditionsNew Stereotactic Radiosurgery Treatment Option for Brain Tumors and Other Conditions

The Montefiore Einstein Center for Cancer Care has adopted yet another leading-edge approach to treatment—stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS). We are the only facility in the Bronx and Westchester certified by the American College of Radiology to offer this special procedure to select patients with brain tumors and other conditions that are not amenable to surgery.

SRS is a highly precise, exceedingly conformal, planning and delivery technique that allows for delivery of a very large concentration of radiation to specific parts in the brain. Get more information on this advanced treatment option. You can also find information on the American Academy of Neurological Surgeons website.

Montefiore Einstein Center for Cancer Care will be at the 2014 ASCO Annual Meeting. Please be sure to visit us at Booth 20112!
