Site for PSCI 22-127 NRG-BN012: A RANDOMIZED PHASE III TRIAL OF PRE-OPERATIVE COMPARED TO POST-OPERATIVE STEREOTACTIC RADIOSURGERY IN PATIENTS WITH RESECTABLE BRAIN METASTASES
Individuals with cancer that has spread to their brain who have 1-4 lesions, or breast cancer history and may or may not have treatment and are within 8 weeks of surgery, will be randomized to either surgery first followed by radiation or radiation first followed by surgery.
Subjects are expected to come to all Radiation/Gamma Knife appointments and continue onto surgery/resection.
