Stereotactic Radiosurgery

Stereotactic Radiosurgery 

St. Joseph Regional Health Center is thrilled to bring this cutting edge technology to the Brazos Valley. The concept of radiosurgery is based on using focused radiation to treat tumors and other abnormalities in the brain, spine, and other parts of the body. The treatment is based on high-resolution imaging, and pinpoint accuracy of radiation delivery. Many tumors and diseases not otherwise treatable, or treated only with high-risk surgery, can now be treated with radiosurgery.

In partnership with the Texas Brain & Spine Institute, the radiosurgery machine and program began operation in early 2007. The radiosurgery unit is state of the art and will not rely on fixing a frame to the patient, but rather use real-time frameless localization. The Stereotactic Radiosurgery program exemplifies St. Joseph's commitment to providing cutting edge technology and treatments that benefit our patients.
