What Is CyberKnife?

CyberKnife technology is a misnomer of sorts. Why? Because it’s not a knife at all, and there’s absolutely no cutting involved. In fact, CyberKnife is a painless radiation treatment that may be an alternative to open surgery in many cases.

The CyberKnife system uses image-guided robotics to precisely and non-invasively destroy tumors and other lesions with multiple beams of high-energy radiation.

CyberKnife uses missile-guided radiation technology to target tumors with pinpoint accuracy, delivering radiation directly to the tumor, while leaving healthy surrounding tissue untouched. Because of this missile technology, CyberKnife can track the tumor even when a patient moves or breathes, all without the use of invasive head frames (as with Gamma Knife).

Thanks to its remarkable clinical accuracy, CyberKnife radiosurgery is precise enough that radiation can be matched to the shape of small, complex tumors located near critical structures. This ability allows the CyberKnife to treat many lesions that may be considered inoperable or untreatable with other radiosurgery systems, giving many patients new hope and new life!

Is the CyberKnife Clinically Proven?

CyberKnife robotic radiosurgery is based on radiation technology that has been in use and well-proven for more than 30 years. Over 150,000 patients have received CyberKnife treatments worldwide, and many clinical studies with the CyberKnife have been published in medical journals.

The CyberKnife system is cleared by the FDA to treat tumors and lesions anywhere in the body when radiation treatment is indicated.
