In brief: Not usually

With any type of radiation, the risk of side effects depends on the dose and body part being irradiated.
Gamma knife is a technique that delivers a high dose to a small area of the body. If the testicles and pituitary gland are not exposed to a significant dose of radiation, fertility should not be effected.
