About Washington Hospital
Washington Hospital, located in Fremont, California, was the first hospital
in the United States to treat patients using the new Leksell Gamma Knife
Perfexion™, a revolutionary alternative to traditional open-brain
surgery and/or daily radiation treatments, which are administered from
four to six weeks. The Gamma Knife Perfexion instead uses focused doses
of radiation without making a single incision to treat malignant and benign
brain tumors in a matter of hours.
Gamma Knife® Program is led by one of the most accomplished teams of specialized physicians,
physicists and nurses. Medical Directors neurosurgeon
Sandeep Kunwar, MD, and radiation oncologist
David Larson, MD, PhD, are both nationally and internationally recognized for their expertise,
innovation and leadership in the field of Gamma Knife radiosurgery. Both
board-certified physicians, together they have more than 23 years of experience
performing thousands of successful procedures.
