CyberKnife Benefits

State-of-the-Art Technology Makes Treatment Comfortable and Effective

Treatment with CyberKnife® results in potentially fewer complications than invasive surgery and often allows patients to have a better quality of life during and after treatment.

Advantages of the CyberKnife® System include:

  • Extremely accurate radiation targeting means higher doses of radiation can be used, offering the patient a better chance for cure
  • Treats hard-to-reach tumors, many that may have been diagnosed as inoperable
  • Tumors receive radiation from many angles, minimizing damage to healthy tissue
  • Continually checks and compensates for any movement you make during treatments, ensuring accuracy
  • Requires no metal head frame or skull pins
  • Eliminates risks related to surgery, including potential infection, complication from anesthesia and post-operative bleeding
  • Requires no recovery time. Most treatments are done on an outpatient basis
  • Patients undergo their treatment and immediately resume normal daily activities
  • Reduces pain
  • Requires no or minimal sedation
