About the CyberKnife System
CyberKnife is a comprehensive radiation therapy system that brings some of the most advanced medical technology in the world together in one treatment. Using precision robotics, advanced medical imaging, and powerful motion-tracking capabilities, CyberKnife delivers high-dose electromagnetic radiation directly to the site of a tumor while minimizing exposure to surrounding cells and tissues. This means CyberKnife provides a nonsurgical, noninvasive form of cancer treatment, attacking cancer cells without the need for chemotherapy drugs or surgical incisions.
Benefits of CyberKnife for Brain Cancer
While CyberKnife has many advantages in its own right, it’s a particularly attractive option for brain cancer patients who are able to receive it. First and foremost, CyberKnife is entirely nonsurgical: the radiation can harmlessly penetrate the skull and healthy tissue, attacking a tumor without the need for surgery. This means many patients can avoid the inherent dangers of brain surgery. CyberKnife’s precision imaging and targeting capabilities also allow it to kill cancer cells without harming nearby tissue, minimizing the risk of side effects from treatment.
In some cases, your doctor may opt to combine CyberKnife treatment with one or more other forms of cancer treatment. If the tumor has spread, your doctor may use CyberKnife to attack the original tumor and chemotherapy to target cancer cells at other locations in the body. In other cases, your doctor may use CyberKnife to shrink the tumor until it’s possible to remove through surgery. Even when CyberKnife isn’t sufficient on its own, it can be an effective and convenient part of many treatment plans.
