These lists cover commonly treated conditions but cannot include every possibility. Stereotactic Radiosurgery may be safer and more effective for other cancers whose treatments may include traditional, invasive surgery or conventional radiation therapy. The advantage of SRS/SBRT is it delivers a focused beam of radiation, non-invasively, to the cancer in a shorter amount of time than traditional treatments. Plus the treatment is delivered with extreme accuracy, minimizing the effect on nearby organs. However, this treatment may not be suitable for all situations, so a Radiation Oncology Specialist should be consulted to discuss treatment options.
