CyberKnife® is an innovative, highly precise, noninvasive alternative to open surgery. The revolutionary technique uses a computer-guided robot arm to deliver radiation with sub-millimeter accuracy. This advanced treatment can target a point from thousands of angles, allowing radiation oncologists to treat difficult-to-reach tumors or unusually shaped masses.
Since CyberKnife is a form of stereotactic radiosurgery (surgery employing a precise radiation beam on 3 planes), this outpatient procedure is bloodless (no surgical incision is necessary) and doesn’t require anesthesia.
Using a linear accelerator to generate radiation beams, the CyberKnife system under experienced physicians’ guidance can treat tumors anywhere in the body.
Stereotactic radiosurgery provides noninvasive treatment for a variety of inoperable or surgically complex central nervous system (CNS) tumors, such as brain and spine tumors including:
CyberKnife can also be used to treat other conditions, often by ablating (surgically destroying) disorder-causing tissues:
