Is CyberKnife Right for Me?

Patient Advantages

  • CyberKnife® treatment is a painless, noninvasive outpatient procedure. You don’t even have to change out of your street clothes.
  • CyberKnife treatment is short-term, depending on the type of tumor, patients may require one to five sessions, each lasting 30 to 90 minutes.
  • CyberKnife treats tumors anywhere in the body, making it an ideal option for inoperable or surgically complex tumors.
  • Synchcrony in motionCyberKnife is noninvasive.  For cranial treatments, no head or body frame is needed.
  • CyberKnife delivers treatments with sub-millimeter accuracy, minimizing damage to surrounding healthy tissue.
  • CyberKnife sessions are brief. Because CyberKnife constantly tracks a patient's movement during treatment, the patient's position never needs to be readjusted.  This greatly reduces treatment time.
  • CyberKnife is a good alternative for patients who already have reached the lifetime dose limit for traditional radiation therapy. CyberKnife avoids risks associated with surgeries such as infection, hemorrhage, anesthesia complications and prolonged recoveries.
  •  CyberKnife treatments are performed as outpatient procedures.  Patients return to the comfort of their homes after each treatment, typically with no recovery time required.
