CyberKnife is a robotic radiosurgery system designed to deliver non-surgical stereotactic radiation treatments with sharp accuracy to treat malignant and benign tumors in the brain, lungs, abdomen, prostate, head and neck, as well as previously radiated areas. It provides an outpatient, non-invasive breakthrough approach to cancer treatment for patients, including some with tumors that are considered inoperable.

CyberKnife uses image-guided robotic technology to deliver extremely accurate, precisely targeted radiation to target and remove tumor cells. Pencil thin radiation beams are directed to reach small, complex tumors, while sparing surrounding critical structures. CyberKnife treatment allows delivery of high doses of radiation in as little as 5 sessions or less, compared to several weeks of treatments with standard radiation.

The CyberKnife System offers non-invasive, outpatient radiation sessions that do not require incisions or anesthesia, resulting in:

  • Avoiding the risk of surgical complications
  • Better tumor control
  • Less risk of damaging healthy tissues and organs
  • Minimal recovery time
  • Reduced number of radiation therapy sessions 
  • Shorter treatment duration
Commonly treated cancers include:
  • Brain and spine
  • Head and neck
  • Liver
  • Lung
  • Pancreas
  • Prostate
