What is CyberKnife and What Does it Treat?

by | Oct 19, 2022 | CyberKnife, CyberKnife Center of Miami, CyberKnife to Treat Cancer

CyberKnife treats tumors, cancerous and non-cancerous any where in the body including prostate, breast, kidney, brain, head and neck, spine, pancreas, liver, lung and metastatic tumors. 

Plus gynecological and other soft tissue tumors, vascular malformations like Arteriorvenous Malformations and nerve disorders like Trigeminal Neuralgia, which both often require only one CyberKnife treatment session. 

Bottomline – we treat lesions and conditions in the body where radiation treatment is indicated.

CyberKnife Miami’s expert team is the most experienced and qualified in South Florida. We were the first CyberKnife center to open in the Southeastern U.S.

Our world class physicians are specially trained in Stereotactic Body Radiosurgery Therapy (SBRT) and are among the most qualified worldwide.

Since opening in 2003 our dedicated staff and physicians have treated thousands of patients with all types of tumors and conditions.

We are a freestanding outpatient center, providing image-guided, targeted radiation therapy using CyberKnife technology.

CyberKnife delivers the most pinpointed radiation therapy which hits only the targeted area, destroying tumors only at the site, while sparing healthy surrounding tissue and vital organs, greatly reducing the risk of side effects.

Because it’s so precise, powerful and hits only the tumor from hundreds of different angles, much fewer treatment sessions are required.

For instance we treat prostate cancer with only 5 treatments over 10 days compared to 42 over several months with other types of radiation.

Many of our patients are treated with the CyberKnife for conditions that have been deemed inoperable or for areas that have previously received the maximum level of radiation. CyberKnife is also an excellent option for patients who don’t want surgery or can’t have surgery.

CyberKnife is non-invasive so there is no cutting, anesthesia or recovery time. You get treated on the CyberKnife table, get up and go to lunch or do whatever you want to do with your day. 

Side effects, if any are usually mild and include slight nausea and/or fatigue.

CyberKnife is the least disruptive cancer treatment available today.

It was designed to treat cancer in the most effective, safest, fastest way so you can get cancer treatment behind you and on with your life.

As an open-staff facility, any patient can come to our center for treatment from any where in the U.S. or the world.

The physicians who use the CyberKnife are trained clinicians in private practice and/or affiliated with medical centers.

We put patients first and guide you through the entire process. We hold your hand every step of the way and leave no questions unanswered so you know exactly what to expect.

We pride ourselves in being compassionate and caring, not just to our patients but their entire family.

We not only answer the phone when you call, we return calls.

Getting a cancer diagnosis is tough and we will help you get through it as easily as possible. 

We are a small private center. You can pull into our parking lot without having to find your way through a medical maze.

We pride ourselves in being compassionate and caring to not just for our patients but their entire family.

We hope you don’t need us, but we’re here if you do.
