Why CyberKnife?

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.

Key advantages of CyberKnife:
  • Treats patients in one to five visits
  • Pain free and requires no anesthesia
  • Minimal side effects
  • Outpatient procedure with no overnight hospital stay required
  • Little or no recovery time
  • Immediate return to normal activities
  • Constantly corrects for tumor and patient movement throughout procedures, so patients can lie comfortably during treatment
  • Reaches most tumors from virtually unlimited directions with robotic mobility
  • Minimizes radiation exposure to healthy tissue surrounding a tumor site
  • Lesions previously treated with maximum allowed radiation doses may also be treated
