    I was wondering, does anyone know what specialty typically provides radio surgery services, especially for cns issues? Is it usually neurosurgery or rad onc?

    It's very frequently delivered by a radiation oncologist and planned with a neurosurgeons input.

    Radiation Oncologists are in charge of the treatment delivery, frequently with neurosurgery input for planning purposes.

    Simple stuff (small, uncomplicated brain mets for example) are sometimes just treated by the rad onc alone.
