TREATING THE DISEASE,

OUR CYCLE OF CARE 

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.

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.
