Patients with cancerous and non-cancerous tumors anywhere in the body, including the prostate, lung, brain, spine, liver, pancreas and kidney, have a non-invasive treatment option that offers sub-millimeter accuracy with Precision CyberKnife of New York.
Precision CyberKnife can focus more than 100 beams of high does radiation with extreme accuracy into a tumor, while avoiding healthy organs and tissue that are close by. It adjusts for even the most subtle motion made by the patient during the treatment. As a patient breathes, the tumor may move. Precision CyberKnife can follow that movement of that tumor, something no other radiation system can do during the course of treatment.
With Precision CyberKnife, patients typically have one to five treatments over the course of a week as compared to conventional radiation treatments that can take 5-9 weeks. During treatment, patients experience no discomfort or pain and they usually can return to normal activity immediately.
Listen to a patient talk about his experience with Precision Cyberknife to treat his brain tumor.
