Gamma knife is a radiation surgery therapy employed for the treatment of brain tumors, epilepsy, arteriovenous malformations, and trigeminal neuralgia. The procedure consists of delivering finely focused radiation of a high dose to the target cells, and its high degree of precision and accuracy prevents damage to the surrounding healthy cells. It is used for the treatment of abnormalities measuring 1 inch in diameter.

Malignant tumors have a big market in the indications segment as a result of the rising prevalence of patients suffering from malignant cancers. Additionally, gamma knife therapy finds huge application in the treatment of malignant tumors owing to its safety features and accuracy. Fractionated external radiation therapy is considered an adjuvant therapy for the treatment of primary brain tumors. Teletherapy, a kind of gamma knife radiosurgery, is finding huge attraction for the treatment of ocular diseases such as choroidal melanoma and uveal melanoma.

Low-radiation gamma therapy is also utilized to reduce intraocular pressure for the treatment of glaucoma. The chief players in the global gamma knife devices market are American Shared Hospital Services, Cyber Medical Corporation Limited, ET Medical Group, Elekta AB, Hokai, Huiheng Medical, Inc., Masep Infini Global, Inc., Nordion, Inc., and Varian Medical Systems, Inc.
