Radiation Oncologists have been using CyberKnife Radiation Therapy to treat early-stage breast cancer for more than a decade & found it to be safer, faster & just as effective as other types of radiation & it’s done in 5 treatment sessions instead of 35 with other types of radiation.
CyberKnife is especially helpful to women who have developed cancer in the left breast, since it’s situated so close to the heart.
CyberKnife’s image-guided technology follows the tumor as a patient breathes reducing the risk of damage to the heart and the lungs.
It’s also safer for women with smaller breasts because it targets only the tumor site, resulting in less damage to surrounding healthy tissue.
And of course shorter, effective treatments are critical for patients who want to get their cancer behind them and on with life.
