Northwest Indiana Gamma Knife Center at Methodist Hospitals

Equipped with Gamma Knife Perfexion – the latest generation of the most advanced radiosurgical technology for non-invasive treatment.

The only gamma knife center in Northwest Indiana, the Northwest Indiana Gamma Knife Center at Methodist Hospitals has been utilizing this lifesaving technology since 2003. Methodist Hospitals’ Gamma Knife Center now employs the Gamma Knife Perfexion, the most advanced stereotactic radiosurgery technology available, which offers enhanced precision for certain types of brain tumors or vascular malformations of the brain.

Design and software advances found in Perfexion offer significant enhancements compared to previous gamma knife technologies, including improved treatment accuracy and safety. Areas of the brain previously inaccessible are now treatable. The expanded treatment coverage of this new generation of Gamma Knife increases treatable indications by about 30 percent over previous Gamma Knife models. Additionally, its updated design enhances safety, with up to 100 times less peripheral radiation dose to patients than other technologies.

The Gamma Knife Perfexion at Methodist Hospitals is not merely the only Gamma Knife in Northwest Indiana, it’s the only Gamma Knife between South Bend and Chicago’s northwest suburbs.

Perfexion is a precise and powerful tool that offers hope to patients with certain brain tumors, vascular malformations and other neurologic disorders, such as trigeminal neuralgia.

Patients undergo a noninvasive procedure that uses a single, high-dose radiation treatment to target small and medium-sized intracranial structures, while sparing nearby tissue.
