The success of a community-based stereotactic program is dependent upon community commitment, technological capability, referral base, patient/family support and, most importantly, proper patient selection. To develop a program of superior quality requires not only a substantial financial commitment, but also a basic philosophical approach which fully supports acquisition and education of support staff, physical plant renovation and an establishment of an expanding referral base. This report details the development of a highly sophisticated stereotactic program in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, a semirural community with a base referral population of approximately 300,000.
