The Thornbury Radiosurgery Centre – treating brain tumours and disorders

The Thornbury Radiosurgery Centre provides a Gamma Knife radiosurgery service for NHS and private patients treating brain tumours and other intracranial indications. We work in close partnership with Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and together are one of two NHS England National Centres of Excellence. 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.
