Each year millions of patients worldwide are potential candidates for stereotactic radiosurgery.

Yet with the significant costs and complexities of historical SRS delivery, only an estimated 200,000 receive treatment.​


The ZAP-X® Gyroscopic Radiosurgery® platform opens new frontiers in modern radiosurgery and robotic medicine, bringing state-of-the-art cranial SRS to more patients in more places, and expanding world-class care to locations previously considered inconceivable.

As the first-in-kind “self-shielded” radiosurgery system, ZAP-X eliminates the need for high-cost radiation bunkers.*

Enabling simple department expansions, ZAP-X also makes cost-effective radiosurgery feasible in virtually any location — including suburban and rural satellite facilities, as well as innovative outpatient settings.

Using modern linear accelerator technology, ZAP-X makes live radioactive sources a thing of the past — no perpetually longer treatment times, no recurring and costly source replacements, and no regulatory bureaucracy.

And as access to Co-60 becomes increasingly scarce, ZAP-X future-proofs your SRS investment.

ZAP-X is dedicated to world-class cranial radiosurgery without the quality trade-offs necessary with multi-purpose, full-body radiotherapy systems.

Uniquely leveraging dual independent gantries, ZAP-X pursues new radiosurgical standards with an extremely low whole brain dose that aims to better protect patient neuro-cognitive function and preserve the ability for future potential SRS re-treatments.

Zap Surgical Culture

With Purpose. With passion.

As the creator of the first new dedicated radiosurgery platform in nearly half a century, ZAP enables neurosurgeons and radiation oncologists to change precision radiation medicine for the better.

Founded in 2014 by Dr. John R. Adler, MD, renowned Stanford neurosurgeon and inventor of the CyberKnife®, ZAP strives to define the future of radiosurgery through solutions and new potential applications never thought possible.

As an alternative to surgery for select brain tumors, ZAP-X offers patients a painless outpatient procedure with no invasive headframe, no anesthesia, no incision, and often no recovery period. Typically delivered in one to five brief treatments, patients often return to normal activities the same day.

To maximize dose gradient and minimize OAR exposure, ZAP-X leverages a large spherical workspace and unique “gyroscopic” linac maneuverability to deliver complex non-coplanar plans with streamlined simplicity. No more time-consuming “couch kicks”, no more related complexities.

As a preeminent technology that demands significant publication, presentation and media interest, ZAP-X provides centers with the ideal platform to build a distinguished clinical brand. And by blending lower facility and operating costs with well-established reimbursement, ZAP-X introduces a new standard in cost-effective, high-quality care.
