The Procedure at CyberKnife Center of Miami

When undergoing CyberKnife treatment, you can rest assured knowing you have the most highly trained radiation oncologists, surgeons, medical physicists, and radiation therapists in the world overseeing your entire procedure.

During Your CyberKnife Treatment

CyberKnife Center of Miami

When you arrive at the CyberKnife center, you and your family will first meet with your radiation oncologist to review the planning and treatment process. You will then be escorted to the treatment room where the CyberKnife therapist will further instruct you on the procedure.

You will be positioned on the treatment couch in the exact position as the CT scanning day. The CyberKnife uses imaging technology to ensure you are in the correct position. The CyberKnife therapist and radiation oncologist verify the images prior to beginning the treatment.

The CyberKnife will move slowly around you during treatment delivery. You will not feel anything and the CyberKnife does not touch you. You can listen to your favorite music or just nap.

The procedure usually takes 30 to 60 minutes, but may take up to 90. After the treatment, you will meet with your doctors and resume your normal activities.

It’s our staff's mission at CyberKnife Center of Miami to manage your expectations and put your mind at ease by explaining the CyberKnife procedure from beginning to end, ensuring your experience is as comfortable and calming as possible. 

After Your Procedure

When you have completed your course of treatment you will follow up with your radiation oncologist and surgeon as determined on the final treatment day.

You will be instructed and scheduled for follow-up imaging studies (CT, MRI, PET) as determined by your doctors. These scans are typically ordered one to three months after treatment.
