Renowned neurosurgeon Prof. Dr. Selçuk Peker has officially opened the center with the presence of Republic of Turkey ambassador Mehmet Kemal Bozay, director of Medical Center of Serbia, Prof. Dr. Miljko Ristić, numerous media representatives, public figures and media experts from Serbia.

About Gamma Knife

Thanks to Gamma Knife radio surgery, diseased brain tissue, which location is determined with correct coordinates, disappears or stops its growth. By millimetric precision, it attacks diseased brain tissue, while leaving healthy tissue preserved. By using Gamma Knife, both benign tumors (meningiomas pituitary adenomas, acoustic neuromas) and malign tumors (metastasis in brain, tumors, glial tumors) can be treated. Despite for brain tumors, it can be used for treatment of venous diseases of brain as well as functional brain diseases (trigeminal neurology, Parkinsonism, epilepsy). This type of treatment is performed for more than 30 years in different parts of the world and in for more than 15 years in Turkey. Until now, more than 100.000 patients all over the world were treated by this method. Gamma Knife is one of the most developed techniques in use for treatment of brain diseases, accepted as a golden standard in stereo-tactic radio therapy.
