Stereotactic Radiotherapy Surgery

Stereotactic Radiosurgery or SRS

Stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) and stereotactic body radiotherapy(SBRT) are a radiation therapy that is non-surgical and used to deliver precisely-targeted radiation which can avoid delivering radiation to healthy tissue.   

When is Stereotactic Radiosurgery a treatment option?

The decision to use stereotactic radiation therapy treatment is dependent on not only where the tumor is but the specific characteristics of the tumor, including how sensitive it will be to radiation treatment, as determined by the radiation oncologist.

While the stereotactic radiosurgery is sometimes used as a follow up to conventional surgery, in other cases the location of the tumor itself may rule out standard surgical treatment altogether.  

Unlike conventional radiation therapy which is delivered over a course of many treatment “fractions”, stereotactic radiotherapy treatment is delivered in a single fraction, a treatment called Stereotactic Radiosurgery or SRS.
