Gamma Knife radiosurgery (GKR) is a technique that consists of the release of a high dose of ionizing radiation onto a therapeutic target, which has been previously delimited. This technique was described by Lars Leksell and Borje Larsson in 1951. In Colombia, there is only one GKR unit functioning machine nowadays. The objective of this study is to describe the institutional experience of a single institution with Gamma Knife Perfexion over 12 years.
