CyberKnife® treats several different types of malignant and benign tumors and lesions, as well as certain other medical conditions, in virtually any area of the body.
Vascular malformations - an abnormal cluster of blood vessels in the brain or spine. While normal blood vessels carry blood with oxygen and other nutrients throughout the body, vascular malformations carry blood without nutrients.
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.
The Commission on Cancer of the American Cancer Society has recently granted a “Three-Year Accreditation with Commendation” to Community Medical Centers, which includes Community Regional Medical Center, Clovis Community Medical Center, Fresno Heart & Surgical Hospital and the California Cancer Center.
CyberKnife® at Community Regional Medical Center – the world’s only robotic radiosurgery system designed to treat tumors anywhere in the body – was upgraded to make treatments available to a wider selection of patients. The technology upgrades will provide faster treatments that can be better customized for individual needs, greater safety and patient comfort.
Each year something very special happens on the balcony at the California Cancer Center – the lives of women with ovarian cancer are celebrated with the unfurling of a quilt in their honor. But even more special than that – the 15 squares that make up the quilt were made by the ladies themselves.
