Non-Invasive, Non-Surgical Cancer Treatment

For years, the primary treatment for cancerous tumors was surgical excision: physically cutting the tumor out of the body through a surgical procedure. While surgery is often effective and still used today, it comes with a number of downsides. Even with modern medical technology, surgery is a difficult procedure that produces many side effects and often requires an extensive recovery period. And if a tumor is in a place that’s difficult to reach through surgery, such as many cases of head and neck cancer, surgery may not even be a feasible possibility for treatment. Additionally, surgery may not even be a treatment option for some patients because they are not surgical candidates.

That’s why at our Pasadena cancer treatment center, we’re excited to offer CyberKnife: a non-surgical, non-invasive cancer treatment option. Instead of physical surgery, CyberKnife uses medical radiation to attack cancerous tumors. Delivered by a robotic arm through a concentrated beam, CyberKnife uses the same form of energy as visible light to attack cancerous tumors without needing to make a single incision. Thanks to CyberKnife’s precision targeting and delivery, the radiation passes through the skin and hits the tumor while preventing damage to nearby tissues and cells.

Virtually No Side Effects or Recovery Period

Because CyberKnife is completely non-surgical and leaves the tissues around the tumor virtually untouched, it often produces little to no side effects. For many patients, CyberKnife treatment is a quick and convenient process, and most patients can return to work almost immediately after completing treatment – in fact, some patients may opt to return to work on the same day as a treatment session! In comparison to surgery, which often requires weeks of recovery, CyberKnife is a highly safe and convenient option for treating a wide variety of cancers.
