Central Virginia's leader in advanced neurosurgery

The Gamma Knife® Icon™ is a minimally invasive, stereotactic radiosurgery tool that uses extremely precise cobalt radiation beams to treat brain tumors, trigeminal neuralgia (face pain), Parkinson's disease, medically refractory essential tremors and other neurological disorders.
