Gamma Knife Center

At the Robert R. Smith, M.D. Gamma Knife Center at Central Mississippi Medical Center, you will find one of the safest, most effective non-invasive treatments possible for benign and malignant brain tumors, metastatic brain tumors, vascular malformations of the brain, and Trigeminal Neuralgia facial pain with the new Leksell Gamma Knife® PERFEXION. Used as both a primary treatment tool and/or adjunct therapy to surgery, chemotherapy or other forms of radiation therapy, the Gamma Knife uses beams of radiation to pinpoint and treat tumors or lesions in brain without a single incision. Performed as an outpatient procedure, Gamma Knife treatment is actually painless and most patients go home the same day.

The PERFEXION is Gamma Knife technology at the highest level, providing enhanced accuracy, precision, efficiency and safety for the treatment of brain disease. As the state’s only Gamma Knife and one of a handful of PERFEXION’s in the nation, this advanced system offers a special ray of hope to the hundreds of patients we see each year suffering from brain disease.
