    At UK HealthCare, we are committed to improving the lives and health of patients using the most advanced health care techniques and Gamma Knife® Radiosurgery Center is a perfect example. With Gamma Knife® radiosurgery, our neuroscience team can treat neurological disorders and diseases without invasive surgery. Many cancer types and some non-cancer disorders can be considered for this high precision treatment approach.

    Gamma Knife’s cutting-edge technology allows some patients to avoid the risks of traditional surgery, as well as an extended hospital stay. Patients can return to the same level of activity they’re used to within 24 hours of Gamma Knife® surgery. Our goal is to return patients to a normal, healthy life as quickly as possible and Gamma Knife’s non-invasive surgery makes that possible.

    The University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital was the seventh in the nation to use Gamma Knife® radiosurgery.
