You are not Alone Against Cancer
A new hope for patients in treatment of tumors which are inoprable can’t be cured with conventional radiotherapy, or require complex surgery.
State-of-the-art Radio Surgery:
- Painless Treatment
- Non-Invasive Surgery
What is Cyberknife Radiosurgery?
Cyberknife radiosurgery is a non-invasive, high energy radiation treatment that delivers very precise beams of radiation treatment that deliversvery precise beamsof radiation from many angels outside the body.The accuracy of Cyberknife is so high that radiation can be”matched” to the shape of small copmlex tumors, even those located near critical organs.This ability allows Cyberknife to many lesions including some considered to be inoperable or untreatable with surgery or other treatment options.Hence,giving many patients new hope.
What are the treatable conditions?
Cyberknife is cleared by the FDA for treatment of tumors and lesions anywhere in the body when radiation therapy is appropriate.However, patients should consult their physicians to determine if this treatment approach is right fort hem.Conditions that can be treated with Cyberknife include:
- Primary&Metastatic Brain Tumors
- Spine Cancer
- Spinal Cord Tumors
- Soft Tissue Tumors(Lung,Kidney,Liver,Pancreas)
- Acoustic Neuromas
- Meningiomas & Skull-base Tumors
- Pituitary Tumors
- Recurrent &Residual Tumors
- Arteriovenous Malformations(AVMs)
- Functional Disorders,such as Trigeminal Neuralgia
WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF CYBERKNIFE?
There is no pain associated with radiaton treatment delivered by CyberKnife radiosurgery system.
The ability of CyberKnife to correct for patient movement during treatment eliminates the pain and inconvenience associated with the rigid metal head frame used with other stereotactic techniques.
Full body capability
CyberKnife’s unique design allows treatment of tumors or lesions throughout the body, an entirely new approach for radiosurgery.Radiation treatment can be administred to soft tissues such as the lung,liver, kidney and other organs, as well as brain and spine.
Out patient treatment
The CyberKnife treatment greatly reduces the risk of complications and lenghtly recovery time associated with traditional surgery.CyberKnife can also perform “staged” radiosurgery-where the total radiation dose is divided into two to five smaller doses over several days. This is particularyly beneficicial for treating larger tumors or those near sensitive areas,providing beter protection to surrounding tissue.After treatment,most patients can return home and resume their regular activities.
