The CyberKnife Robotic Radiosurgery System is a revolutionary advancement in non-invasive cancer treatment technology. CyberKnife directs focused radiation to benign and malignant tumors. CyberKnife continually tracks the tumor and adjusts treatment beams to accommodate patient movement, including breathing patterns. Painless treatment is delivered with sub-millimeter accuracy, minimizing damage to nearby healthy tissue.
With CyberKnife, hospitalization is typically unnecessary. Patients usually require three to five outpatient treatments, while others require only a single treatment. Treatment times range from 60 to 90 minutes. The CyberKnife machine is currently located at St. John Medical Center. Click here to learn more about the St. John CyberKnife Center.
