CyberKnife® is the most advanced non-invasive cancer treatment available. Despite its name, CyberKnife® radiosurgery does not use a knife. In fact, the procedure is completely non invasive, with no incision, no blood loss and no pain. Instead, the CyberKnife® system delivers highly targeted beams of radiation to destroy tumors with minimal, if any, impact to surrounding tissue.

CyberKnife's® advanced technology improves on earlier therapies with treatment that is more accurate and more comfortable for patients. Because of its great precision, CyberKnife® is the first radiosurgery treatment that can be used for tumors anywhere in the body - offering new hope for people with cancer. CyberKnife® currently is used to treat cancers of the brain, spine, lungs, liver, pancreas and prostate.

CyberKnife® is not limited to cancer treatment. It also can be effective in destroying non-cancerous conditions, such as vascular tumors, abnormal blood vessels, acoustic neuromas, trigeminal neuralgias and more.
