Stereotactic radiosurgery is a type of radiation therapy that uses a rigid head frame attached to the skull to aim high-dose radiation beams directly at brain tumors. This type of treatment causes less damage to nearby healthy tissue. This is also called stereotaxic radiosurgery and radiation surgery. This procedure does not involve surgery.
