Elekta traces its history to the inventions of Lars Leksell, a Swedish physician and Professor of Neurosurgery who invented the Leksell Stereotactic System and Leksell Gamma Knife.  Dr. Leksell devoted his career to relieving the suffering of patients through innovation and the creation of minimally invasive techniques and technology.  Dr. Leksell’s unwavering commitment to his patients continues to influence and inspire the work of Elekta today.  Elekta’s Corporate Giving Program strives to advance causes that reflect Dr. Leksell’s spirit, ingenuity, and commitment to patient care.

Each year, Elekta contributes millions of dollars to support cancer and brain disorder research, education, training, public awareness, scientific advancement, and patient advocacy. All Elekta corporate giving activities reflect the company’s commitment to doing business with the highest ethical standards and in compliance with all applicable laws.
