Second Opinions

Second Opinions

The University of Virginia's Gamma Knife team has unparalleled experience, and the results contained on this website are derived from its own clinical outcomes.  Our experience and outcomes combined with the state of the art technology to perform intracranial radiosurgery have attracted more than 6800 patients from every state in the U.S. and 54 countries to come to the University of Virginia for their Gamma Knife radiosurgery.

Whether you are a patient from central Virginia or one from New Zealand, the University of Virginia is the first place to get a second opinion about brain surgery.  To arrange for a second opinion, please send your clinical records, neuro-imaging studies (MRI or CT), and contact information to the following address:
