During CyberKnife® treatment, you will lie comfortably on a treatment table while the machine’s robotic arm moves around you, aiming and firing targeted radiation beams from numerous angles. The cumulative dose of radiation kills tumor cells while minimizing exposure to the surrounding healthy tissue.
CyberKnife® offers important cancer treatment options, especially for patients with inoperable or surgically complex tumors, or those who seek an alternative to conventional surgery or radiation therapy. Because CyberKnife does not require incisions or anesthesia, there also is much less risk for complications than with conventional surgery.
Doctors at Community Regional Medical Center now use endoscopic ultrasound to assess lung diseases. This nonsurgical procedure uses high-frequency sound waves to produce detailed images that allow physicians to accurately biopsy lymph nodes in the center of the chest without surgery. Endoscopic ultrasound is a relatively new procedure and a plus for the patient as it also is performed minimally invasively.
Community Medical Centers replaced paper medical charts with a new, computerized medical record system in all of its inpatient care centers, outpatient clinics, labs, imaging centers and at two of its hospitals, Community Regional Medical Center and Clovis Community Medical Center.
Community Medical Centers implemented a state-of-the-art electronic medical record system starting Sept. 28, which is designed to enhance care and service to patients. Now there is one record for each patient in one electronic location, usable by all of those who provide medical care within the Community network.
