What is radiosurgery?

The Edge’s knifelike beam precisely treats tumors. Procedures last about an hour and patients can quickly get in and out.
The ability to breathe freely with Edge enables patients a more comfortable experience. This is made possible with advanced motion-management techniques that aid doctors in protecting surrounding healthy tissue. Deep-seated tumors in the brain and spine can be treated with the surgical precision.
