ABOUT SRS & SBRT

Stereotactic Radio Surgery and Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy is a cutting edge radiation technique that allows tumors to be treated with high doses of accurate pin point radiation beams while causing very little effects on the surrounding normal organs. SBRT is similar to SRS  for brain lesions however it is used to treat tumors outside of the brain. This is commonly used in surgically inoperable tumors of the brain and body. Rio Bravo Cancer Center utilizes SRS and SBRT to deliver an accurate dose and allows our radiation specialists to control the amount of radiation that gets to organs, all in real time. Depending on the clinical situation SRS/SBRT can be equivalent to or even better than surgery. SRS/SBRT usually is completed in 1-5 daily treatments.
