Every year millions of brain tumor patients worldwide are potential candidates for stereotactic radiosurgery. Yet with the significant costs and complexities of historical SRS delivery, only 200,000 patients receive such treatment.
ZAP was founded by John R. Adler, Jr., MD, renowned stereotactic radiosurgery pioneer and Emeritus Dorothy & TK Chan Professor of Neurosurgery and Radiation Oncology at Stanford University. Focused on finding smarter brain care solutions for physicians and patients, Dr. Adler invented the CyberKnife® Radiosurgery System prior to developing the ZAP-X platform.
Today, ZAP is a team of clinical and industry experts motivated by a single question: Can an advanced surgical robot address the limitations of the past to deliver potentially life-saving SRS to more people in more places? We believe it can. We believe the ZAP-X platform defines what’s next in radiosurgery for the brain.
