  • What is CyberKnife

    What is CyberKnife

    What is CyberKnife? The CyberKnife treats cancer through a process called stereotactic radiosurgery, a noninvasive method that uses high-dose radiation precisely aimed from different angles. It's the world'sMore >>
    The CyberKnife system uses the combination of a robotics and image guidance to deliver concentrated and accurate beams of radiation to intracranial and extracranial targets, many of which are inoperable. The robotic arm is highly flexible, allowing access to tumors in difficult-to-reach locations.More >>

    Arriving Wear comfortable clothing and no jewelry. Try to relax knowing this will be a painless procedure. Feel free to bring a list of questions to ask the CyberKnife team. They are there to ensure yourMore >>
    During treatment, you will need to lie still. You will be awake throughout the entire procedure, which typically lasts 30-90 minutes depending on the complexity of your tumor. The image guidance system periodically takes x-ray images and compares them to data from the CT scan to ensure the radiation is targeted accurately to the tumor.More >>
