The Leksell Gamma Knife Society was established in 1989 to provide a forum for Gamma Knife users to share information, experiences, clinical techniques and advanced scientific research in their quest to non-invasively treat an expanding number of brain disorders. The meetings, which are held biannually, result in a large number of clinical publications, in recent years published as a supplement to Journal of Neurosurgery.
