Benefits of CyberKnife

Benefits for Patients
Because CyberKnife is non-invasive, it has significantly fewer complications than traditional open surgery and can often achieve comparable or better outcomes.

Other benefits include :
  • No incisions
  • No pain
  • No bleeding
  • No stereotactic frame (as used with Gamma Knife)
  • No anesthesia
  • No recovery time
  • Immediate return to normal activity
  • Minimal radiation to surrounding healthy tissue
  • Hope for lesions untreatable by open surgery or other radiosurgical systems
  • A second chance for those who have previously undergone the maximum allowed doses of radiation 

Benefits for Physicians
  • Treat complex tumors previously considered inoperable because of complexity or proximity to critical structures
  • Treat tumors virtually anywhere on the body
  • Flexibility in treatments
  • Flexibility in dosage -- physician may specify single dose or fractionate therapy
