Hello Agate,

Do you mean Pittsburgh, PA, or are you talking about a different Pittsburg?

Thanks,
Cindy

Guess I should have done spell check - I meant Pittsburgh, Pa and I'm talking Gamma Knife - I'm not sure where the FK came from

Sorry, we do not have experience with the gamma knife. Pittsburgh is excellent for the gamma knife, tho. In fact, I think that is where it first started.

(My daughter is scheduled for cyberknife in Pittsburgh on 10/19, 10/21, and 10/23.) 

Good Luck,
Cindy
