A Leader in Gamma Knife® Radiosurgery, Practicing in Atlanta, GA
Gamma Knife® radiosurgery is a highly precise, radiation-based treatment that in certain situations can be used as an alternative to traditional surgery. For some inoperable tumors, it can lead to a cure or effective treatment when other options are lacking. In Atlanta, Georgia, Dr. Jim Robinson, M.D., is the leading neurosurgeon specializing in Gamma Knife® radiosurgery and other advanced brain surgery techniques.
Dr. Robinson is the most experienced Gamma Knife® practitioner in Atlanta, having performed more than 700 such procedures. As a result, he has an unparalleled level of experience and can expertly treat tumors with minimal impact to the surrounding brain tissues. And, because radiosurgery does not require a traditional incision and causes no surgical trauma to the brain, the recovery process is often easier than it is for patients who undergo traditional brain surgery.
At Brain Expert, PC, Dr. Robinson’s neurosurgery practice, Gamma Knife® radiosurgery is offered as a treatment for the following conditions:
- Metastatic tumors
- Acoustic Neuromas
- Trigeminal neuralgia
- Pituitary tumors
- Arteriovenous (AVM) malformations
- Cavernous malformations
Radiosurgery can be an excellent option for patients who are not good candidates for traditional surgery. For instance, it can be ideal for older individuals, or those whose tumors are in a location that makes traditional surgery more risky. Dr. Robinson can review each patient’s unique diagnosis, personal preferences, and other factors to determine which treatment – be it radiosurgery, minimally invasive brain surgery, an endoscopic embolization procedure, or another option entirely – is most likely to produce the desired results with the lowest risk possible.
