What makes CyberKnife different from other cancer treatments?
The CyberKnife System’s leading-edge technology is designed to follow moving tumors with pinpoint accuracy. This unique capability results in the delivery of more accurate and higher doses of radiation to the tumor, while minimizing the exposure of healthy surrounding tissue. This limits some of the short- and long-term side effects commonly associated with conventional treatments.
Patients can complete treatment in one to five days, compared to the weeks involved in a course of conventional radiation therapy. CyberKnife patients routinely report that they have minimal side effects from their treatment, and in most cases, they can immediately return to their normal daily activities.
