THE FUTURE IS HERE – CYBERKNIFE TECHNOLOGY
The CyberKnife® System is the world’s first and only robotic radiosurgery system, designed to treat tumors throughout the body non-invasively. It has provided a pain-free, non-surgical option for over 200,000 patients world-wide with tremendous success. It is our mission to make CyberKnife treatment available to the broadest number of cancer patients and physicians.

The targeting system tracks tumors while compensating for normal patient movements to minimize radiation exposure to surrounding healthy tissue.
X-ray sources take images and compare the CT scan data to check that radiation beams are locked on the tumor.
The linear accelerator generates high-dose radiation beams, which reduce treatment time.
Patients lie on a treatment table for 30-60 minutes while the robotic arm moves around them, delivering radiation with pinpoint precision.
WHY DO PATIENTS CHOOSE CYBERKNIFE?
CyberKnife treatments involve a team approach in which several specialists participate. Below is a description of what you can expect during your visit.

CUTTING-EDGE CYBERKNIFE® ROBOTIC RADIOSURGERY SYSTEM
The CyberKnife® Robotic Radiosurgery System is a non-invasive alternative to surgery for the treatment of both cancerous and non-cancerous tumors anywhere in the body, including in the prostate, lung, brain, spine, liver, pancreas, and kidney. The treatment—which delivers beams of high dose radiation to tumors with extreme accuracy—offers new hope to patients.
WHY DO PHYSICIANS CHOOSE CYBERKNIFE?
The CyberKnife Stereotactic Radiosurgery System has a broad clinical application for both intracranial and extracranial radiosurgery.

Tomorrow’s Technology, Today.
The CyberKnife System was cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in 1999 to treat targets in the head and base of the skull, and in 2001 for treatment outside of the skull. Since then, hundreds of thousands of patients have been successfully treated with the CyberKnife System.
