  • Dr. Bhatt is a Radiation Oncologst with Radiation Oncology Consultants in Chesterfield, MO. His speciality is Gamma Knife Surgery. Gamma knife surgery is a type of radiation treatment performed with the Gamma Knife®, a noninvasive neurosurgical tool. In gamma knife surgery, your doctor focuses several small, highly precise doses of radiation in the brain. This type of radiation therapy can help shrink small brain tumors or block abnormal blood vessels and nerves in the brain that cause pain or seizures. Gamma knife surgery can also help treat certain neurological disorders, such as Parkinson’s disease.
