For people who suffer from spinal tumors, a new study shows that CyberKnife is a better treatment option for managing and reducing pain. Our patient Angie Perez, walked around for 6 years with numb legs due to a tumor in her spine. The pain was so bad that at times she couldn’t get out of bed and had to crawl to the bathroom.
While Angie just had a single tumor in her spine, new research is showing that CyberKnife Radiosurgery (SBRT) treats spinal metastases faster, more accurately and with a shorter course of treatment than conventional radiation.
A few months after her CyberKnife treatment, Angie was back on her feet, wearing high heels and enjoying a better quality of life.
