What is CyberKnife®?
CyberKnife® is a non-invasive option for patients who have inoperable or surgically complex tumors, or who may be looking for an alternative to surgery. The CyberKnife system enables our radiation oncologists/ Neurosurgeons to deliver high doses of radiation with pinpoint accuracy to a broad range of tumors throughout the brain and spine.
Potential benefits of the CyberKnife system include:
- No incision
- No pain
- No anesthesia or hospitalization
- Greater comfort (patient can breathe normally during treatment)
- Little or no recovery time
- Immediate return to normal activities
