What is the CyberKnife system?

The CyberKnife Robotic Radiosurgery System is a non-invasive alternative to surgery for the treatment of both cancerous and non-cancerous tumors anywhere in the body, including the brain, head, spine, lung, prostate, liver pancreas, kidney and more. The treatment – which delivers beams of high dose radiation to tumors with sub-millimeter accuracy – offers new hope to patients worldwide.

Though its name may conjure images of scalpels and surgery, the CyberKnife treatment involves NO cutting. In fact, the CyberKnife System is the world’s first and only robotic radiosurgery system designed to treat tumors throughout the body non-invasively. It provides a pain-free, nonsurgical option for patients who have inoperable or surgically complex tumors, or who may be looking for an alternative to surgery.

*Cyberknife robotic treatments are covered by Medicare and most all insurances for treatments throughout the body.
