CyberKnife® Advantage

How Does It Work?

CyberKnife is an advanced technology that delivers a specialized form of radiation therapy called stereotactic radiosurgery, or stereotactic body radiation therapy. It is comprised of a compact linear accelerator, a machine that generates a radiation beam, attached to a highly maneuverable robotic arm.

During CyberKnife procedures, patients will lie on a treatment table while the machine’s robotic arm moves around their body delivering high doses of radiation directly to their tumor with pinpoint precision minimizing exposure to surrounding healthy tissue. Most treatment sessions typically last 30 – 60 minutes in 5 or fewer treatments depending on the size, shape and location of your tumor.

Good Candidates for CyberKnife

Individuals Who Have:

  • Medically inoperable or surgically complex tumors, or those who seek an alternative to surgery.
  • Recurrent cancer or metastatic tumors that have spread to other areas of the body from the main tumor site.
  • A high risk of developing complications after surgery.
  • Received prior radiation treatments.

Key Advantages of CyberKnife

  • Noninvasive, no incisions, no knife
  • No anesthesia or hospitalization required
  • Five or fewer outpatient treatment sessions
  • Little to no recovery time
  • Allows for an immediate return to daily activities
  • Few side effects and minimal radiation exposure to healthy tissue surrounding a tumor
