What Is CyberKnife?
CyberKnife is a state-of-the-art radiation therapy system that uses a variety of advanced technologies to deliver high-dose radiation to a tumor with sub-millimeter accuracy. Using a rotating robotic arm and cutting-edge medical imaging system, CyberKnife delivers powerful electromagnetic energy to a tumor that kills cancer cells, and its razor-sharp precision protects surrounding tissues and cells. CyberKnife can even track the motion of the tumor due to breathing and gases shifting in the body, then adjust for this movement in real time. This means that with CyberKnife, you never have to wear a brace or uncomfortable immobility device.
CyberKnife for Colorectal Cancer
CyberKnife treatment is a comfortable, convenient process, and most patients receive their full dosage of radiation over the course of one to five consecutive days. Each treatment appointment lasts about an hour, and all you do during treatment is simply lie on the treatment couch and let CyberKnife target your tumor with radiation. It’s a completely noninvasive treatment so there are no incisions or use of anesthesia, and most patients feel well enough to continue with their day after a treatment appointment.
For many cases of colorectal cancer, especially early-stage cancers, CyberKnife can be a powerful treatment option for patients. However, it’s not right for everyone. Only you and your doctor can decide if CyberKnife is the ideal option for your cancer treatment. Some patients may be treated with CyberKnife alone, but in many cases, your doctor will opt to combine CyberKnife with another treatment like surgery or chemotherapy. Ultimately, it all depends on the specifics of your case – and we’ll go over your options with you during your consultation.
