Tumors and Tremors: How the Gamma Knife Can Help You

Hosted by H. Warren Goldman, MD

You may know that the gamma knife treats both malignant and benign brain tumors. What you may not know is that the gamma knife can also successfully alleviate the symptoms from Parkinson’s disease; facial pain, such as trigeminal neuralgia; and arteriovenous malformations (abnormal collections of arteries).

Dr. H. Warren Goldman has been a major innovator in technology-driven brain surgery and utilizes the Leksell Gamma Knife® Perfexion™ at Cooper University Hospital, the only hospital in the Delaware Valley to offer patients this newest version of the Gamma Knife.

Dr. Goldman is nationally and internationally renowned for his clinical research and academic leadership in stereotactic radiosurgery and minimally invasive brain surgery. He graduated from New York Medical College, Valhalla, N.Y., and completed his residency in Neurological Surgery at The Albert Einstein College of Medicine. A frequent lecturer and author, Dr. Goldman was awarded the Medal of Honor by New York Medical Center and received the Distinguished Service Award from MCP Hahnemann University Department of Surgery. He introduced the first gamma knife in Philadelphia at two hospitals before bringing this technology to Cooper University Hospital.

This technology may help you and Dr. Goldman is the expert to ask.
