CyberKnife is a unique non-invasive treatment that relieves pain for patients who are suffering with TM. It beams high doses of radiation directly to the trigeminal nerve root with precise accuracy, minimizing harm to surrounding tissue while relieving the recurring stabbing pain of this facial nerve condition. And, it’s administered by some of the most highly qualified and skilled radiation oncologists in the country.
The CyberKnife System combines a flexible, robotic arm that can easily move to hundreds of different angles, guiding the beams of radiation to the exact root of your trigeminal nerve. Orchestrating the movement of the arm is a high-tech imaging system that monitors any movement in real-time and adjusts the radiation to stay on-spot with your every movement, even as you breathe. With usually one short outpatient treatment, the radiation has accomplished its goal of reaching the nerve and, slowly, over the next few months, the nerve dies, eliminating or minimizing your pain.
