Kidney Cancer Awareness Month

At Pasadena CyberKnife Center, March is one of our favorite months of the year. Why? March is Kidney Cancer Awareness Month, and we think this is a truly important cause worthy of promoting and learning more about. Kidney cancer is one of the most common forms of cancer for both men and women, affecting some 60,000 new people every year. In the past, methods like surgery and chemotherapy were the recommended treatments for kidney cancer – but thanks to advances in medical technology, we can now offer a revolutionary new treatment that’s considerably more effective and convenient than treatments of the past.

Treating Kidney Cancer with CyberKnife

CyberKnife combines some of the most advanced medical technologies in the world to create a cancer treatment system that’s more convenient, comprehensive, and effective than almost any other on the market today. CyberKnife uses targeted radiosurgery, delivering high-dose radiation to the site of a tumor with sub-millimeter accuracy. The radiation prevents cancer cells from reproducing, and after the existing cells die off, the tumor fades away – and thanks to its accuracy and precision, CyberKnife minimizes damage to surrounding cells and tissues. In addition, CyberKnife uses the Synchrony Respiratory Tracking System, which lets it track and compensate for the movement of the tumor in real time – so there’s never a need for painful, irritating braces and immobility devices during treatment.

CyberKnife is one of the most effective cancer treatments on the market, and at Pasadena CyberKnife Center, we specialize in using CyberKnife to treat virtually all forms of kidney cancer. Whether you’ve been diagnosed with renal cell carcinoma or transitional cell carcinoma, our team will design a detailed treatment plan to help you beat cancer and reclaim a healthy, normal life.
