Our UHN programs and services are among the most advanced in the world. We have grouped our physicians, staff, services and resources into 10 medical programs to meet the needs of our patients and help us make the most of our resources.
University Health Network is a health care and medical research organization in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The scope of research and complexity of cases at UHN has made us a national and international source for discovery, education and patient care.
Our 10 medical programs are spread across eight hospital sites – Princess Margaret, Toronto General, Toronto Rehab’s five sites, Toronto Western – as well as our education programs through the Michener Institute of Education at UHN. Learn more about the services, programs and amenities offered at each location.

After your procedure, the neurosurgeon or radiation oncologist will remove your head frame. You will then be taken back to the
Gamma Knife Clinic waiting room.
The pin sites on your forehead will be covered with small bandages. Do not get the pin areas wet for the next 24 hours. You may have some bleeding or discharge of fluid in the areas where the pins were placed. You may get a headache or minor swelling where the frame was attached.
You may have nausea and be sick to your stomach. The nurse will tell you to take deep breaths as this will help to decrease your nausea and fully expand your lungs.
We will monitor you for 1 hour after we remove your head frame. Then you may go home.
