Sunway Medical Centre recognizes the need to keep up with technological advancements that are scientifically proven to impact treatment outcomes and to make these treatments available to the public. We are the first hospital in Southeast Asia to offer the Leksell Gamma Knife® Icon™ treatment. With greater reliability and accuracy, very little discomfort and lesser radiation to healthy issues, the Gamma Knife is a gold-standard procedure in brain surgery. It is known for its precision, high success rate and ability to treat the most complex and challenging conditions that a conventional open-brain surgery can’t.

Her life changed after she knew about the Leksell Gamma Knife Icon."

"Ms. Eslilis was suffering from trigeminal neuralgia for some seven years before Gamma Knife treatment was recommended to her. She required one session of the Gamma Knife treatment and has been pain free since November 2017."
"Mr. Yeong Mun Sum was diagnosed with brain tumour after experiencing discomfort in his eye and was suffering from blurry vision. Investigations showed that a tumour was pressing on the optic nerves. As a suitable candidate, Gamma Knife treatment was recommended."

Leksell Gamma Knife® Icon™

The Gamma Knife is not a conventional surgical knife in the traditional sense. In fact, there are no knives or scalpels involved, no incisions made. This “knife” refers to an array of 192 precise beams of gamma radiation that produces a powerful dose of concentrated radiation when converged at the treatment site.


The goal of the ‘Cycle of Care’ is to give patients the best chances of a positive outcome, enhanced quality and vitality of life through early diagnosis, optimal treatment interventions, a multi-disciplinary team approach and immaculate symptom control.
