For more than a decade Radiation Oncologists have been using CyberKnife Radiation Therapy to treat early-stage breast cancer and found it to be safer & faster, including for women with smaller breasts & tumors on the left breast.
Dr. Mark Pomper, CyberKnife Miami’s Medical Director & Board Certified Radiation Oncologist says 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 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.
CyberKnife Miami is among the first cancer centers in South Florida offering the treatment.
