Chesapeake Regional Neuroscience Institute

Our neurosciences program features neurologists, neurosurgeons, neuroradiologists, and a neurosurgery-specific operating team to diagnose and treat the entire spectrum of neurosurgical disorders. We are also a partner in the Chesapeake Regional, Riverside and UVA Radiosurgery Center offering non-invasive treatment of benign and malignant tumors in the brain and other areas.

A new level of care for our area

Radiosurgery procedures on the brain are performed using Gamma Knife®, considered one of the most advanced non-invasive neurosurgical tools available. The Gamma Knife® allows a surgeon to perform brain surgery without a scalpel and without cutting the skull. Instead, the Gamma Knife® treatment uses 201 highly focused beams of Cobalt-60 radiation that intersect at a tumor site to produce biological effects on tissues inside the skull. Because of its exceptional precision, treatment is typically carried out in a single sitting and potential damage to healthy surrounding tissue is minimized. This Gamma Knife® radiosurgical treatment has an impressive scientific track record with thousands of peer-reviewed articles. No other non-invasive treatment method in this field has greater clinical acceptance in the world.
