I am particularly excited about the research we are undertaking regarding the use of Gamma Knife Radiosurgery for patients with six to twenty brain metastases.  Currently, these patients are generally relegated to whole brain radiation, which can have adverse cognitive and functional side effects.  Our research suggests that these patients can have a much better quality of life with Gamma Knife radiosurgery even if they have six or more lesions.  This finding should change care for thousands of people with metastatic disease to the brain every year.
