The $17.5 million project was spearheaded by Dr. Keith Aronyk, a pediatric neurosurgeon and the head of clinical neurosciences at the University of Alberta Hospital.
It took 11 years to execute. "This is not surgical," Dr. Aronyk said. "It's surgical precision." The Gamma Knife will use Cobalt-60 as its source of gamma radiation. Individual beams of radiation will pass through brain tissue leaving it unharmed. However, when many beams of the radiation converge they will have enough energy to halt proliferating cancerous cells. Dr. Aronyk said that normally, someone going under the Gamma Knife could expect a daylong procedure. This technology will decrease the chance of tumour recurrence and in many cases will "obviate the need for surgery altogether," Dr. Aronyk said. The Gamma Knife can provide pinpoint accuracy, allowing surgeons to access hard-to-reach portions of the brain and remove entire tumours without having to leave any behind. "It's so nice to have (a radiosurgical unit) as part of your armamentarium," Aronyk said. After playing a key role in the establishment of the Stollery Children's Hospital and its surgical division in 2001, Dr. Aronyk wanted to improve neurosurgery at the hospital. He proposed the addition of a Gamma Knife. "We used to treat all of our aneurysms by opening up the skulls of sick people who'd just had a hemorrhage in the brain," Dr. Aronyk said. "You'd have to sneak in there with a seven-hour operation and try to secure the point of bleeding with a clip." Dr. Aronyk said he remained driven throughout the project, and is hopeful that this would put the university hospital on par with other facilities in the world. He added that Edmonton would be "put on the map" for its radiosurgery. Dr. Aronyk credits the province of Alberta for inter-city cooperation to improve the medical system. He is also grateful to the Edmontonians who donated to the project.

Dr. Keith Aronyk - Neurosurgery Divisional Director
Dr. Aronyk completed his medical school training at the University of Alberta (MD 1977) after which he trained for two years in General Surgery before transferring to Neurosurgery and completing this training, again at the University of Alberta (FRCSC 1984). He then entered Neurosurgical practice in Edmonton specializing in Pediatric Neurosurgery (1985 - 1990) until his move to Children's Memorial Hospital (Northwestern University, Chicago, Illinois) from 1990 - 1993. By 1993, he was certified by the American Board of Pediatric Neurological Surgery after having been certified by the American Board of Neurosurgery three years earlier (1990). In 1993, with the dream of a Children's Hospital for Edmonton, he returned to his home town to resume his Pediatric Neurosurgical practice. By 2000, he was appointed Chief of Surgery at the Stollery Children's Hospital (University of Alberta Hospital) again in an attempt to establish a Division of Pediatric Surgery in Edmonton. His practice at present is limited to Pediatric Neurosurgery.

"Gamma Knife radiosurgery is pain and incision-free," said neurosurgeon Dr. Keith Aronyk, director, division of neurosurgery, University of Alberta Hospital.
"There's no operation.
