A word to the wise when it comes to cancer treatment options: Follow the science.
There may be many alternative hocus-pocus or snake oil therapies that promise to cure your cancer. But the truth is, those treatments are often not proven, not covered by insurance, not studied in legitimate clinical trials, and not peer reviewed. That’s a lot of “nots.”
And you do NOT want to trust your life to junk science.
The experts at the CyberKnife Center of Miami, a state-of the-art radiation treatment center for cancer, know a cancer diagnosis can be scary and downright unsettling.
That’s why you must do your homework and find the right treatment for you – a treatment supported by science like CyberKnife. That will give you the best chance to beat your cancer and resume your life.
If your cancer treatment plan involves any type of radiation, treatment with CyberKnife may be right for you. And if your treatment calls for surgery, CyberKnife may be a scientifically based alternative.
So let the experts at CyberKnife Miami help guide you to make a smart choice – one with the best odds of killing your cancer.
CyberKnife Cancer Treatment
Let’s start with a brief explanation of what CyberKnife is. The name is a little misleading because CyberKnife is not a knife at all. It’s a state-of-the art, noninvasive radiation treatment system for cancerous and non-cancerous tumors and other medical problems.
But CyberKnife has a distinct advantage over traditional radiation.
CyberKnife’s missile guidance technology enables the stereotactic body radiation therapy or SBRT to track a tumor’s movement in real time. The technology delivers radiation directly to the tumor, while leaving healthy surrounding tissue unharmed. This way it can deliver the highest dose of radiation possible. With CyberKnife, patients need a shorter course of treatment than with traditional radiation because SBRT is targeted radiation.
CyberKnife has been used for more than three decades and studied in clinical trials. It has helped hundreds of thousands of patients – even patients who were told they couldn’t have more radiation, or their tumors were inoperable.
Cancers and Conditions Treated With CyberKnife
CyberKnife can be used to treat cancers of the prostate, lungs, breast, kidneys, pancreas, liver, spine, lymph nodes and brain as well as other metastatic cancers and medical conditions like Trigeminal Neuralgia where radiation may be needed.
The makers of CyberKnife track all clinical trials where CyberKnife is involved, and the list is long. Some of the very current trials include breast and gynecological cancers as well as more studies on lung and liver cancers.
Plus, CyberKnife has been shown to have a 98% cure rate for prostate cancer.
Here are a few other benefits of cancer treatment with CyberKnife:
- Excellent control of tumors
- Lower risk of damage to healthy tissue
- Better quality of life while undergoing treatment
