Dr. Gil Lederman has personally treated thousands of people with benign and malignant brain tumors. The data in this book represents his own personal experience with brain radiosurgery from the first treated patient.
Dr. Lederman has more than two decades experience performing Stereotactic Radiosurgery.
Dr. Lederman has lectured around the world about Brain and Body Stereotactic Radiosurgery and Prostate Cancer Seed Implantation – with data and experience valuable for most every patient.
Dr. Lederman has performed Prostate Seed Implantations in over 3000 men and is a leading expert in the field of Prostate Cancer treatment. Using Seed Implantation along with Fractionated Stereotactic Radiosurgery which focuses the treatment on the prostate, decreases unnecessary radiation on healthy tissues and produces generally superb results as seen by comparison data.
Dr. Lederman has shown generally excellent results and highly accurate and focused stereotactic radiosurgery while AVOIDING the potentially dangerous and unneeded daily CT scans that are performed in other centers. By avoiding the daily CT scans that are commonly performed elsewhere, Dr. Lederman's technology helps minimize the radiation exposure to healthy tissues that may lead to serious side effects in the future.
