CyberKnife is a new, innovative cancer treatment system that combines some of the most advanced medical technology in the world from a variety of fields, creating one of the most powerful cancer treatments on the market today. CyberKnife is a radiation therapy treatment, which means it uses a focused, high-intensity beam of electromagnetic energy – the same kind of energy as visible light – to attack cancer cells and eliminate tumors.
This radiation can reach a tumor anywhere in the body, and it’s easily able to pass through skin and clothing, meaning CyberKnife is a nonsurgical, completely noninvasive treatment. Thanks to its world-class imaging and motion tracking systems, CyberKnife can even monitor and adjust for involuntary tumor movement due to things like breathing. This means that unlike many other radiation therapy treatments, CyberKnife doesn’t require the use of painful braces or immobility devices.
CyberKnife for Cervical Cancer
Cervical cancer affects important parts of the female reproductive system – and understandably, many women are hesitant to undergo surgical treatment on this part of the body. This makes CyberKnife an ideal treatment for cervical cancer: there are no surgeries, no incisions, and no tissue removal, so patients can treat their cancer without scars or other lasting physical effects.
The treatment process itself is remarkably convenient. Most patients complete their treatment over the course of 1 to 5 consecutive days, with each treatment appointment lasting about an hour. The appointments are simple and comfortable: you’ll simply come to our Pasadena Cancer Center, lie on the treatment bed as CyberKnife delivers the radiation, and leave once you’re finished. Most patients find they feel comfortable enough to continue with their day after a treatment session.
After you finish your course of radiation, we’ll schedule you for a follow-up appointment in about 6 weeks. During this visit, we’ll take diagnostic measures to determine the efficacy of the treatment and discuss any next steps we might need to take. And remember – no matter where you are in the treatment process or how your cancer is responding to treatment, the team at Pasadena CyberKnife is committed to your long-term health and success.
