The concept, the first applications and even the denomination “Radiosurgery” were all defined by the Swedish neurosurgeon Lars Leksell in a seminal article published in 1951. Three years before that Leksell had created one of the first stereotactic apparatus intended for human use.
Stereotaxis enables the accurate targeting of any point within the skull and inserting an electrode or needle with high precision into that point.
