CyberKnife

CyberKnife is a radiosurgery instrument that provides surgery-like results without surgery. There is no pain, no incisions, no blood loss, no anesthesia and little or no recovery time. The tumor-fighting power comes from up to 1,200 beams of radiation that target the tumor while sparing healthy surrounding tissue. The range of motion offered by the robotic arm gives it maximum flexibility to reach tumor sites not accessible by other means.

Best of all, CyberKnife continuously checks and compensates for any movement a patient makes during treatment – even adjusting as patients breathe – ensuring superior accuracy. Because of its accuracy, CyberKnife can use higher doses of radiation to attack tumors and is extremely useful for lung cancer in particular. 

St. Mary’s of Michigan is the only hospital north of the Detroit area to offer CyberKnife and patients from around the country and into Canada seek us out for this treatment technology.
