Treating Ovarian Cancer with CyberKnife
While CyberKnife treatment is not a cure in these situations, patients very frequently experience improvement in symptoms and can live more comfortable and fully functioning lives. The benefits of SBRT with the CyberKnife far outweigh any potential risks.
The sophisticated software uses X-ray images taken during treatment. This allows us to precisely deliver radiation to the tumor while minimizing damage to the surrounding healthy tissue and other critical structures and body organs.
The CyberKnife system can also continuously track and follow a tumor’s exact location as the patient breathes normally while on the treatment table. This enables the doctor to zero in on the moving tumor and focus hundreds of radiation beams from different angles, all attacking the tumor, delivering the highest dose of radiation possible to destroy tumors.
CyberKnife treatment is completely pain-free. Patients dress comfortably in their own clothes and can bring music to listen to during the treatment.
Nothing is required of the patient during the treatment, except to relax. In fact, patients often sleep through treatment.
There are generally only minimal side effects from CyberKnife therapy, which may include mild nausea and fatigue.
After completing the CyberKnife treatment, patients will schedule follow-up appointments.
Keep in mind that the tumor will not suddenly disappear. In fact, it could take several weeks or longer to determine the effectiveness of the CyberKnife treatment.
Response to treatment varies from patient to patient. Clinical experience has shown that most patients respond very well.
We’ve treated many patients diagnosed with metastatic ovarian cancer, some who were even told that there was nothing more that could be done for them, with gratifying results.
