Laser interstitial thermal therapy (LITT) is a minimally invasive surgical technique that uses a small laser to destroy unhealthy brain tissue. It can be an effective treatment option for recurrent brain tumors, radiation necrosis, and tumors that form deep within the brain. It is also used to treat certain types of epilepsy. Duke is among the top institutions for the number of LITT procedures performed each year in the U.S.
