CyberKnife® offers many unique benefits for cancer patients and those with benign tumors, vascular malformations and trigeminal neuralgia (cranial nerve pain).

  • Revolutionary - CyberKnife® can treat previously inoperable tumors and lesions.
  • Non-surgical – The sophisticated CyberKnife® robotics and modern imaging information eradicate internal tumors without the need for incisions or invasive procedures.
  • Accurate - CyberKnife® continually tracks the tumor and adjusts treatment beams to accommodate patient movement and breathing, minimizing damage to nearby healthy tissue.
  • Painless - CyberKnife® is non-invasive, painless and eliminates the risks associated with open surgery.
  • Frameless - The revolutionary precision of CyberKnife® eliminates the need for metal head frames used in traditional radiosurgery.
  • Outpatient Treatment - Hospitalization is typically unnecessary.
  • Convenient - Most patients will require three to five treatments and some only a single treatment.  Treatment times range from 60 to 90 minutes.
  • No Recovery Time - Following treatment, a patient can resume normal activity including work and sports.
