CyberKnife – Radiosurgery

Service:

CyberKnife is a robotic radiosurgery system commonly used for the treatment of cancerous and non-cancerous tumors in the brain or the base of the skull. It is also used in certain cases to treat cancers of the pancreas, liver, prostate and lungs. CyberKnife offers a non-invasive alternative to surgery. Without using scalpels or any cutting at all, the CyberKnife delivers beams of high dose radiation to tumors with pin-point precision. During treatment, image guidance software tracks movement of the patient and tumor to accommodate for adjustments and ensure patient comfort.
