The London Gamma Knife Centre at St Bartholomew's

London Gamma Knife Centre

The London Gamma Knife Centre at Barts provides a high-quality, cost-effective, radiosurgical service for patients with certain brain tumours – many of which have been deemed to be inoperable.

With clinical input from specialists from Barts and The London NHS Trust, the centre was originally established in 1999 at Harley Street, where over a thousand patients from all over the UK and overseas were treated.  Acquired by HCA, and run by The Harley Street Clinic, the centre was accredited to receive NHS patients in 2002 and then moved to new, purpose-built premises at Barts Hospital, one of the UK’s leading cancer treatment and research centres in 2009.

The Centre uses the state-of-the-art Perfexion™ Gamma Knife® machine which offers the advantages of increased patient comfort and more conformal dose planning with less risk of damage to adjoining healthy areas.

Continuous clinical input from the Trust and its consultants ensures The London Gamma Knife Centre at Barts provides high-quality, specialised care. This is enhanced by its multi-disciplinary clinical team (MDT) comprising neurosurgeons, clinical oncologists, neuro-radiologists and physicists who discuss every referral to the centre before treatment is approved. All patients must meet strict clinical protocols and the MDT ensures that only suitable patients are accepted for treatment. The London Gamma Knife Centre at Barts encourages consultants from other NHS Trusts to present cases and treat, in collaboration with the fully trained Gamma Knife clinicians.
