Stereotactic Radiosurgery (SRS) and Stereotactic Laser Ablation (SLA) are two minimally invasive surgical procedures that use computers and advanced technologies to locate and target lesions in precise areas of the brain. SRS and SLA offer an alternative to people with epilepsy caused by masses (tumors) in the brain or vascular (arteriovenous) malformations that are difficult to reach through conventional surgery.
Stereotactic Radiosurgery (SRS)
Stereotactic Radiosurgery or SRS, is a procedure using radiation therapy to treat abnormalities of the brain.
Stereotactic Laser Ablation (SLA)
Stereotactic Laser Ablation or SLA is a minimally invasive procedure which destroys damaged tissue of the brain that causes seizures using a laser fiber.
SRS and SLA techniques are not for every patient. The team of specialists will confirm if you are a candidate and, if eligible, they will determine which one is the most effective treatment option for you.
