What is Stereotactic Radiosurgery (SRS)?

Stereotactic Radiosurgery (SRS) is a type of radiotherapy that allows precise and high dose radiation beams to be delivered to a small, localized area of the body, mostly in the brain to destroy a lesion. It is usually a single dose of treatment but may include up to 5 treatments.
It works like a targeted missile which strikes and destroys the tumor with minimal collateral damage.

Unlike open surgery, SRS is relatively painless and non- invasive, and has been used as an effective alternative to surgery or conventional standard fractionated radiotherapy for treating small tumours and other selected medical conditions.
