Vidant performs over 1,000 Gamma Knife procedures

GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – Local doctors are taking time to note over a thousand people they’ve helped. Neurosurgeon at Vidant Neurosurgery, Dr. Stuart Lee, says he’s glad he could help people get back to their daily routines. The Gamma Knife procedure is an advanced radiation treatment for adults and children with small to medium sized brain tumors or abnormal blood vessel formations.

Connie Nanney had a brain tumor. She says she was nervous for the procedure but is happy she went through with it.

“It was a Friday morning out of my life, it has prolonged my life so much that, I wouldn’t be able to sit here if I didn’t have,” Nanney said.

Patients with serious disorders can be treated with the noninvasive procedure in one day with no overnight hospital stay.
