Treating Cancer with CyberKnife

The CyberKnife® Robotic Radiosurgery System is an advanced technology that delivers a specialized form of radiation therapy called stereotactic radiosurgery, or stereotactic body radiation therapy. It is the only system to continuously stay on target despite patient and tumor motion. It enables tumors to be treated anywhere in the body with confidence and without compromise.

During CyberKnife procedures, patients will lie on a treatment table while the machine’s robotic arm moves around their body delivering high doses of radiation directly to their tumor with sub-millimeter precision, minimizing exposure to surrounding healthy tissue. Most treatment sessions typically last 30 – 60 minutes in five or fewer treatments depending on the size, shape and location of your tumor.

CyberKnife Advantages:

  • Noninvasive, NO incisions, NO knife
  • NO anesthesia or hospitalization required
  • Painless
  • 5 or fewer outpatient treatment sessions
  • Little to NO recovery time
  • Allows for an immediate return to daily activities
  • Minimal, if any, side effects due to pinpoint precision of high-dose radiation delivery
  • Minimal radiation exposure to healthy tissue surrounding the tumor treatment site

Why CyberKnife?

The CyberKnife System is an image-guided linear accelerator mounted on a robotic arm that is designed to deliver a very precise type of external radiation treatment known as stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT). It is the only radiation therapy technology that tracks tumor motion and automatically adjusts the treatment beam as natural prostate motion is detected. The CyberKnife System is highly precise, enabling clinicians to deliver individualized treatment with sub-millimeter accuracy through the use of continual image guidance and robotic mobility. As a result, the radiation is targeted to the prostate, minimizing exposure of healthy tissue. Using the CyberKnife System, physicians can precisely maximize dose in four to five treatment sessions, minimize side effects, and maximize patient comfort during treatment.
