Stereotactic Neurosurgery

The world’s most trusted stereotactic system

Stereotactic neurosurgery is a method to localize and then treat targets within the brain in a minimally invasive manner. It is used for both diagnostic and therapeutic procedures, such as biopsies of deep-seated targets and implantation of DBS electrodes to treat functional disorders with neuromodulation.

With more than 1800 systems in daily use at over 1300 sites worldwide, Leksell Stereotactic System is the benchmark solution in stereotactic neurosurgery. The system’s frame-based approach is designed to shorten planning time, afford broader procedural options and provide superior clinical accuracy—increasing the potential for optimal outcomes and faster patient recovery.

Elekta offers one integrated system for stereotactic neurosurgery.
