Brain and CNS
Sacred Heart Hospital in Pensacola is the only facility in Northwest Florida to offer the most advanced form of non-invasive brain surgery, the Leksell Gamma Knife® Perfexion™. This sophisticated medical device is not actually a knife at all; the Gamma Knife Perfexion is a stereotactic radiosurgical instrument that delivers a single high dose of precisely focused radiation to the target, while leaving surrounding healthy tissue virtually unharmed. Gamma Knife radiosurgery has proven effective for patients with benign or malignant brain tumors, arteriovenous malformation (AVM), trigeminal neuralgia and other functional problems.
