How Does CyberKnife Work?

CyberKnife is an advanced stereotactic radiosurgery system that is the most precise technology available for treating cancerous tumors. It offers brain cancer treatment without invasive surgery, which can have complications especially with brain surgery. Because it can beam high doses of radiation at various angles directly to your tumor, and track the slightest movement, it leaves healthy cells unharmed. This not only preserves the important functions of the brain, it also almost eliminates side effects seen with traditional radiation treatments. Recovery time is minimal and patients can go about their normal duties usually the next day. CyberKnife is clinically proven effective for treating brain cancer and is used alone or sometimes in conjunction with other brain cancer treatments.
