Research

Doctors and scientists at Mayo Clinic are studying new ways to use and improve radiosurgery (SRS and SBRT). Mayo Clinic researchers study stereotactic radiosurgery for brain abnormalities and stereotactic body radiotherapy for abnormalities in other areas of the body.

Mayo Clinic doctors working in neurology research and cancer research have contributed greatly to the understanding of stereotactic radiosurgery.
