What Is CyberKnife?
The CyberKnife system is an advanced radiation therapy system that uses precision-targeted, high-dose radiation to kill cancer cells and eliminate cancerous tumors. CyberKnife treatment is completely noninvasive: there are no incisions, no surgery, and virtually no side effects. It’s a convenient, highly effective method for treating bladder cancer.
What Makes CyberKnife Different
The power of CyberKnife lies in its synthesis of advanced technology from many fields of medicine. CyberKnife delivers radiation through a powerful, precise robotic arm which is able to rotate around the patient’s body, allowing CyberKnife to deliver radiation to almost any point in the body from virtually any angle. Combined with this is CyberKnife’s advanced medical imaging system, which allows it to target radiation with sub-millimeter precision. Finally, CyberKnife uses the powerful Synchrony Respiratory Tracking System: advanced software that can track tumor movement due to breathing and other involuntary movements, then correct for that movement in
real time. This means that treatment with CyberKnife doesn’t require the use of uncomfortable immobility braces: patients simply lie comfortably on the treatment couch as CyberKnife delivers radiation.
Treating Bladder Cancer with CyberKnife
CyberKnife offers a powerful treatment for bladder cancer, and the process is remarkably convenient. Most patients receive their treatment over the course of 1-5 consecutive days. During treatment, you’ll visit our Pasadena radiation therapy center each day for your radiation dose. Appointments normally last around an hour, and there are little to no side effects: you simply visit our center, lie on the treatment couch as CyberKnife delivers radiation, and then go about your day. If you’re diagnosed at an early stage, we may be able to treat your cancer with CyberKnife alone. However, in many cases, your doctor will recommend combining CyberKnife with another method
such as surgery or chemotherapy. We’ll work with you to develop a treatment plan that’s right for your condition and lifestyle.
