World-Class Cancer Treatment Center in Pasadena, CA
At Pasadena CyberKnife Center, we’re proud to help patients take heart and hope against cancer even in the direst of circumstances. Our team of renowned doctors, oncologists, and cancer-fighting specialists have spent years treating cancers of all kinds, and we provide treatment for almost any kind of cancer, anywhere in the body. Liver cancer is among the most common forms of cancer, but with CyberKnife, we can treat various forms of liver cancers and tumors.
The CyberKnife System is a revolutionary radiotherapy cancer treatment system that combines some of the most advanced technologies in the world to produce one of the most powerful, convenient, and effective cancer treatments in the world. CyberKnife uses a robotic arm system to deliver precise, high-dose radiation to virtually any spot in the body with sub-millimeter accuracy. CyberKnife uses a world-class computer vision system to aid in finding the tumor, and thanks to its use of the Synchrony Respiratory Tracking System, CyberKnife can track the movement of the tumor from breathing and adjust for it in real time. This means that unlike other forms of radiotherapy, CyberKnife doesn’t require the use of uncomfortable braces and immobility devices – all the patient has to do is lie still as CyberKnife delivers radiation to the tumor with unparalleled precision.
Liver Tumors Treated with CyberKnife
CyberKnife can treat a wide variety of liver cancers, and no matter what you’re facing, we’ll work with you to develop a treatment plan that will help you beat cancer and achieve total health. At Pasadena CyberKnife Center, we can treat any of the following tumors and more:
- Inoperable Liver Tumors: Inoperable tumors in the liver used to be nearly a death sentence – but thanks to CyberKnife, there’s hope. Instead of using surgical removal, CyberKnife uses precise, high-dose radiation to target the cancerous cells and prevent them from multiplying. Crippled and unable to subdivide, the tumor slowly shrinks as the cancerous cells die off. Plus, thanks to CyberKnife’s sub-millimeter accuracy, it’s able to deliver this radiation directly to the tumor with minimal damage to healthy cells and tissues, producing minimal side effects.
- Recurrent Liver Tumors: Even if a liver cancer treatment is successful, there’s always a chance for recurrence. Recurrent liver tumors, or liver tumors that return even after treatment, can be difficult to treat because the liver may be partially compromised from previous treatments. Often, however, CyberKnife can deliver a treatment precise enough to eliminate the tumor without putting the liver in jeopardy.
- Metastatic Liver Tumors: Metastatic cancer refers to cancer that has spread to another part of the body from the original cancerous area. These metastatic cells are the same kind found in the cells of the original tumor. Often, metastatic tumors require a combination of treatment methods and therapies, but CyberKnife often plays a vital role in treating them. Your treatment team will work with you to find a comprehensive treatment method that works for your unique situation.
The CyberKnife Treatment Process
CyberKnife treatment is non-invasive, non-surgical, and performed entirely on an outpatient basis. Plus, the one-hour treatment sessions are simple and convenient: all you have to do is lie on the treatment bench normally, letting CyberKnife do all the work. Thanks to its use of advanced medical technology and world-class radiation therapy techniques, CyberKnife provides one of the most convenient cancer treatment processes in the world.
Treatment varies from patient to patient, but generally, we’ll complete your CyberKnife treatment in 1 to 5 sessions over the course of a week. Sessions last up to an hour, and you’re free to go about your day as normal after the session. We’ll start your treatment with planning sessions, where we’ll take a CT scan and learn as we can about your cancer, your health, your medical history, and any other relevant information. After that, your treatment team will work together to design a detailed treatment plan encompassing your radiation dosage, your treatment schedule, and any necessary follow-up appointments. After you finish your treatment sessions, you’ll come back to our cancer treatment center for periodic follow-up appointments to ensure the cancer is eliminated and the treatment was successful.
