“Stereotactic Radiosurgery: A Transformation in Managing Neurologic Disease --- From Operating Room to Outpatient Treatment”

Speaker:  Navid Redjal, MD, Director, Neurosurgical Oncology Capital Institute for Neurosciences, Capital Health

 

Stereotactic radiosurgery, the ability to precisely target lesions with focused radiation beams, is advancing the treatment of neurologic disease. Complex lesions deep within the brain, which once required high-risk surgeries, can now be treated in a non-invasive manner and on an outpatient basis. This has been a boon to patients with: brain tumors; vascular lesions; the movement disorders of Parkinson’s Disease and essential tremor; and pain conditions, such as trigeminal neuralgia --- resulting in vastly improved quality-of-life. While advances in computer processing and memory storage/retrieval speeds drove some of these breakthroughs, others came from progress in the fields of: neural networks and neuroanatomy; physics; radiology and robotics. Our speaker will describe these rapidly-evolving surgical approaches and their prospects for future use in treating myriad diseases, including psychiatric disorders.
