Precise, Powerful
Cancer Treatment

Ellis Medicine is excited to announce it’s now offering high-dose, ultra-precise radiation therapy techniques known as Stereotactic Radiosurgery (SRS) and Stereotactic Body Radiotherapy (SBRT).

SRS is a highly precise form of radiation therapy initially developed to treat small brain tumors and functional abnormalities of the brain. Our team uses advanced treatment planning software to perform image fusions of the treatment planning CT scan with MRI and PET scans to precisely locate tumors and microscopic diseases to design radiation plans to converge on the target area from different angles and planes.

The principles of cranial SRS, namely high precision radiation where delivery is accurate to within one to two millimeters, are now being applied to the treatment of body tumors with a procedure known as stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT).


What Is Stereotactic Radiosurgery & What Does It Treat?

SRS is a form of radiation therapy that is used to treat many types of brain tumors, including:

  • benign and malignant
  • primary and metastatic
  • single and multiple residual tumor cells following surgery
  • intracranial, orbital, and base-of-skull tumors

By utilizing Versa HD, a revolutionary linear accelerator, we improve cancer patient care. Only Versa HD represents the convergence of conventional radiotherapy with advanced stereotactic precision. We now have the flexibility to treat a broad spectrum of tumors throughout the body with conventional approaches and highly complex cancers that require extreme targeting precision.

SBRT is currently being used and/or being investigated for use in treating malignant or benign small-to-medium sized tumors in the body and common disease sites, including the:

  • lung
  • liver
  • abdomen
  • spine
  • prostate
  • head and neck
