No matter the specifics, a cancer diagnosis is one of life’s most difficult challenges – but it’s never something you have to face alone. At Pasadena CyberKnife, we’re proud to help people throughout the Pasadena and greater LA area win the battle against cancer every day, and we offer some of the most advanced treatments in the world at our Pasadena cancer center. Our flagship treatment, CyberKnife, is one of the most convenient treatments on the market today – and we can use it to treat many forms of gynecologic cancer.
CyberKnife is a state-of-the-art radiation therapy system that unites some of the most advanced technology in medicine to create a single breakthrough cancer treatment system. Utilizing cutting-edge technology in medical robotics and imaging, CyberKnife is able to deliver high-dose radiation directly to the site of a tumor almost anywhere in the body, all with sub-millimeter accuracy. This means that CyberKnife can attack cancerous cells without damaging nearby tissues and structures. Plus, CyberKnife can track and compensate for involuntary tumor movement in real time, eliminating the need for painful braces and immobility devices.
CyberKnife for Gynecologic Cancer
CyberKnife can be used to treat many cases of gynecologic cancer, providing a convenient and effective treatment that eliminates the downsides of other treatment methods. CyberKnife is a completely noninvasive treatment: there are no incisions, no anesthetics, and no surgical procedures, which means you won’t have scarring or visible evidence of a surgery. CyberKnife also comes with fewer side effects than treatments like chemotherapy, making it an attractive option for many patients.
The treatment process itself is remarkably simple. Most patients receive their full dose of radiation over the course of 1 to 5 days, with each treatment appointment lasting roughly an hour. During the procedure itself, you simply lie on comfortably on the treatment couch and let CyberKnife deliver radiation: no braces necessary. And CyberKnife produces such minimal side effects that many patients feel well enough to continue with their day after treatment.
