Stereotactic Radiosurgery Program
The ANS Stereotactic Radiosurgery Program consists of a team neurosurgeons, radiation oncologists and physicists working together to non-invasively treat brain and spine tumors, vascular malformations and facial pain from trigeminal neuralgia. With stereotactic radiosurgery, ANS surgeons can deliver highly focused radiation beams that target specific lesions within the head and spine with minimal damage to normal tissue. The precisely focused radiation beams can non-invasively destroy a targeted tumor or vascular malformation.
The CyberKnife is a safe, non-invasive, technologically advanced robotic device for treating brain tumors and an increasing number of conditions without incisions and with little or no pain. These highly precise treatment vehicles deliver customized radiation doses to treat a variety of brain disorders with surgical precision—but without the surgery.
Using the CyberKnife, an increasing number of conditions—including those that were once considered inoperable and those for which other therapies are ineffective—can often be successfully treated without incisions and with little or no pain.
Conditions treated with CyberKnife include: acoustic neuroma, meningiomas, pituitary tumors, pineal tumors, brain metastases, glial and astrocytic tumors, skull base tumors, and other benign and malignant tumors, arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) and neurological disorders such as trigeminal neuralgia.
The ANS Stereotactic Radiosurgery program is co-directed by Dr. Yaron A. Moshel, co-director of the Overlook Hospital Brain Tumor surgery program and the Morristown Medical Center Endoscopic Skull base surgery center and Dr. Brian Beyerl, co-director of the Overlook Hospital Radiosurgery center. Our team of physicians cover a wide variety of hospitals and receive patients throughout the tri-state area.
