Lung cancer is among the most serious types of cancer, but thanks to CyberKnife, there’s more hope than ever for treatment and recovery.
Advanced Technology for Unprecedented Results
Traditionally, lung cancer treatment relied mostly on surgical methods for tumor extractions. While effective, studies show that surgical treatment methods yield a 75% survival rate after three years. In the same study, however, CyberKnife was shown to yield a 3-year survival rate of 95% – a major increase in treatment. In another study, 48% patients who underwent surgery for lung cancer treatment experienced grade 3 complications, which include issues like chest wall pain, shortness of breath, and rib fracture, and 4% of surgery patients died. In the group treated with CyberKnife, however, only 10% of patients experienced grade 3 complications and no patients died.
CyberKnife achieves these results through its unique combination of the latest technology in radiosurgery, medical imaging, and robotics, providing a one-of-a-kind treatment solution for almost any type of cancer. CyberKnife uses these technologies to deliver a beam of high-dose radiation to the site of a cancerous tumor with extreme precision, achieving sub-millimeter accuracy from virtually any angle. The revolutionary Synchrony Respiratory Tracking System allows CyberKnife to monitor the movement of a tumor through the body as a patient breathes, adjusting the radiation beam in real time to deliver consistent treatment without damaging surrounding tissues. Plus, because the robotic arm adjusts for tumor movement, there’s no need to wear painful braces and immobilizing devices. This advanced technology allows CyberKnife to kill cancerous cells and eliminate a tumor without damaging surrounding tissues, all through a non-invasive, non-surgical treatment method.
An Effective Alternative to Surgery for Cancer Treatment
In almost every case, CyberKnife is a viable and effective alternative to cancer treatment and can be used in place of surgery. As a non-invasive treatment, CyberKnife is an ideal option for patients whose health may not tolerate an invasive chest surgery. CyberKnife can be combined with other treatment methods like surgery, but it’s also effective as a standalone treatment for many cases. Thanks to its revolutionary blend of advanced medical technologies, CyberKnife provides one of the safest, most effective, and most convenient treatment options available for cancers of the lungs and many other areas of the body – all without surgery, without side significant side effects, and without a recovery period.
