Gamma Knife Radiosurgery: Support Services

At Atrium Health Levine Cancer, we take a person-centered approach for the best possible patient experience. Our treatment center was designed with your comfort in mind, and our Gamma Knife coordinator offers personal support every step of the way. 

Integrative oncology services 

Integrative oncology is an evidence-based, holistic way to promote wellness and maximize your quality of life throughout treatment and recovery. We offer a special menu of integrative oncology services designed to help patients receiving Gamma Knife treatment

These services include: 

  • Music therapy: Music therapy can help you feel less nervous during your treatment. Music therapists meet with you as you are getting ready for radiation. Together, you can work on using music to lower your stress and help you feel calmer. This may include making a playlist of music that could help during treatment and learning other ways to relax.  
  • Guided imagery meditation: If you’re nervous about your treatment, guided imagery meditation can help you feel more relaxed. You can meet with a nurse and listen to a recording to prepare for your treatment. 
  • Therapeutic art: Our artists-in-residence work with patients and care partners to use art to tell your story, express your feelings and have fun. If your treatment uses a mask, you can work with the artist to make something fun and meaningful out of your mask when you are done with treatment. 
  • Spiritual care: Our chaplain is available to meet with patients and care partners. The chaplain can help with processing health concerns and finding meaning through spiritual support. 

Our Gamma Knife coordinator can help you understand the integrative services available to you, including costs, and make a plan that works for you.
