Radiation Therapy Centers in Pasadena, CA
Getting diagnosed with a cancerous condition can be one of life’s scariest, most difficult experiences – but with Pasadena CyberKnife, it’s never something you have to face on your own. As a leading cancer treatment provider serving the greater Los Angeles area, we help patients of all ages beat many different forms of cancer at our Pasadena cancer center. In addition to most forms of cancer, we can also use CyberKnife to treat certain noncancerous conditions, including acoustic neuroma.
H2 CyberKnife Treatment for Acoustic Neuroma
CyberKnife is our flagship treatment, combining some of the most advanced medical technology on Earth into a single cancer treatment system. Instead of pharmaceuticals or outright surgical removal, CyberKnife uses high-dose radiation to fight cancer, delivering precision radiation directly to the site of the tumor to kill cancer cells. This means that CyberKnife is a completely noninvasive, nonsurgical treatment: there are no incisions, no scars, and few side effects.
Why Choose CyberKnife?
Because it’s entirely noninvasive, CyberKnife makes a particularly good option for treating acoustic neuroma. Whereas many surgical treatments for acoustic neuroma can be performed laparoscopically, and therefore produce only small scars, CyberKnife offers a completely nonsurgical option with no scars whatsoever: your face, neck, and head will be left completely unscathed by the treatment.
Furthermore, CyberKnife’s use of advanced medical technology makes it a highly convenient way to treat acoustic neuroma. Using state-of-the-art medical imaging combined with the Synchrony Respiratory Tracking System, CyberKnife is able to track involuntary movement of the tumor due to things like breathing, then compensate for it in real time – ensuring that radiation attacks the tumor but surrounding tissue and structures aren’t affected. This motion tracking capability also means that there’s never any need for uncomfortable braces or immobility devices. During
treatment, you simply lie down on the treatment couch and let CyberKnife do the work.
