Treatment Advantages

The CyberKnife System takes radiosurgery to a new level. The ability to receive a pain-free, non-invasive treatment means patients can resume their normal lives with renewed hope and vigor.

Advantages of the treatment include:

  • A total of 1-5 treatments with durations averaging 30-90 minutes depending on tumor location, size and complexity
  • No incisions or blood loss
  • No anesthesia required
  • Outpatient procedure
  • No post-operative recovery
  • Minimal recovery time and rapid return to normal activity
  • Advanced age or coexisting medical conditions do not affect the ability to receive CyberKnife treatment
  • Enables more powerful radiation doses
  • No limitations of time-consuming, uncomfortable head and body frames or other immobilization devices
  • Automatically moves the patient to the exact treatment position with immediate accuracy–providing greater setup precision while significantly streamlining the patient setup process
  • Tracks, detects and corrects for even the slightest tumor and patient movement (including breathing patterns) throughout the entire treatment to significantly enhance treatment accuracy
  • .3mm surgical precision accuracy
  • Potential for decreased side effects
