While CyberKnife comes with a number of advantages in convenience, one of its greatest strengths is that it can treat cancer with pinpoint accuracy virtually anywhere in the body. This means that CyberKnife provides hope for even the most difficult tumors.

The Problems with Surgery & Chemotherapy

Surgery and chemotherapy-based treatment methods are effective and in wide use today, but they do come with drawbacks. Chemotherapy has some uncomfortable side effects, and surgery usually requires a significant recovery period. While both of these treatments are still important tools in the fight against cancer, they don’t always work on their own.

If a tumor is in a location that’s difficult to reach – like many forms of head & neck cancer – it may not be viable to excise it through surgery. Additionally, tumors in close proximity to important vital organs may present difficulty in treating with surgery or chemotherapy. While surgery may still be a part of treatment, it isn’t always sufficient on its own – and sometimes, a tumor may be inoperable altogether.

Surgery and chemotherapy are still viable and may present effective treatment for many patients, but sometimes, they’re simply not enough. Difficult cancer cases may not be treatable through surgical operations, and chemotherapy on its own may not be effective against larger tumors. Thankfully, CyberKnife offers hope for patients with even the most challenging cases of cancer.

Using Radiation Therapy to Treat Cancerous Tumors That Surgery Can’t

CyberKnife solves these problems by using a comfortable, convenient, and non-invasive method to treat cancer: radiation therapy. Using advanced medical technology, CyberKnife can deliver high-dose radiation to the site of a tumor with sub-millimeter accuracy, effectively killing the tumor without damaging nearby tissues and without the need for an incision. Because CyberKnife treatment is so precise, it often comes with virtually no side effects and little to no recovery period – even for tumors that would be exceedingly difficult to treat with surgery or chemotherapy alone.

Some patients can be treated entirely with CyberKnife, and when combined with more traditional methods like surgery and chemo, CyberKnife can provide a powerful treatment option for the most difficult cases. We can often use CyberKnife to eliminate tumors entirely, shrink tumors prior to surgery, or to minimize the chance of recurrence – making the negatives of surgery and chemo less severe and providing a surer road to recovery for patients. Even for the most difficult cancer cases, CyberKnife offers the hope of a powerful, effective, and comfortable cancer treatment process.
