What Is CyberKnife® Robotic Radiosurgery?
CyberKnife® Robotic Radiosurgery System is a fully-robotic radiation delivery system. It’s one of the most innovative and advanced alternatives to surgery for cancer treatment. The procedure is painless and noninvasive—no cutting and no anesthesia are involved. The CyberKnife System also allows for shorter recovery times compared to traditional surgery.
This noninvasive outpatient procedure can treat both cancerous and noncancerous tumors. CyberKnife® allows for accurate delivery of radiation to various areas of the body. It also rids your body of tumors without the complicated risks that could come with conventional surgery.
CyberKnife System for cancerous tumors and benign tumors
During the CyberKnife System procedure, our team uses computer-operated robotics and image guidance to reach hard-to-reach tumors, all while accounting for the patient’s breathing, which may cause tumors to move during traditional procedures. The CyberKnife System eradicates tumors with precision and can prevent damage to nearby healthy tissue. The procedure is also a great alternative to surgery for patients who have been diagnosed with an inoperable or surgically complex tumor.
The CyberKnife System can be used to treat malignant and benign tumors in many other areas of the body, including the:
- Head & Neck
- Lungs & Chest
Alternative to traditional stereotactic radiosurgery
The CyberKnife System is the first and most advanced radiosurgery system. This technology also allows for a more personalized treatment plan to meet a patient’s needs. The CyberKnife System also aims to shrink or control tumor growth. The goal of The CyberKnife System is to destroy the harmful cells all while making sure no healthy cells are damaged in the process.
