There are many advantages of allowing Orange County CyberKnife and Radiation Oncology Center to treat your lung cancer. Our outpatient facility in Southern California is home to a variety of radiation treatment options and we employ some of the most highly trained and skilled radiation oncologists in the country to manage and execute those treatment options. Using the experience they have, our experts can prepare a treatment plan that is best based on your specific case.
For lung cancer, that treatment plan often includes the CyberKnife Robotic Radiosurgery System, either alone or in conjunction with other treatments like surgery or chemotherapy. This system is built to deliver high doses of radiation precisely to your tumor and kill the cancerous cells. Studies show that CyberKnife is more effective than surgery at treating early stage lung cancer.
Effective use of radiation in treating lung tumors is made difficult by the fact that they can move up to two inches as you breathe normally. Because of this, traditional radiation treatments must set a wider path for the radiation to account for the tumor’s natural movement. But the CyberKnife is different. It combines a flexible, robotic arm with state-of-the-art imaging system to track the movement of your tumor and adjust the arm and beams of radiation at hundreds of angles to its exact location even as you breathe. This precision reduces negative impact to any surrounding tissue or organs and insures maximum exposure to the cancerous cells.
It is the most precise radiation treatment available and it provides treatment without invasive surgery, within a week’s time and with minimal side effects. Our Orange County treatment team can work closely with your medical team to use the CyberKnife system for stand alone treatment as well as for treatment that complements other options including surgery and/or chemotherapy.
The non-surgical CyberKnife treatment is given at our comfortable Southern California treatment center located in Fountain Valley, California. You will be welcomed to our offices for treatment planning, treatment sessions, and post-treatment follow-up appointments.
