The CyberKnife® Robotic Radiosurgery System is a powerful noninvasive robotic machine that is used to treat cranial (head and neck) cancerous and noncancerous tumors as well as other tumors located throughout the body with extreme accuracy. The CyberKnife® System is an important tool for the physicians at Capital Health to use in treating tumors and other diseases. The system is a good alternative to surgery for the treatment of a variety of tumors including those which affect the prostate, lung, brain, spine, liver, pancreas and kidney. With each CyberKnife® case, the surgeon creates a treatment plan that will precisely deliver high doses of radiation to tumors without damaging surrounding tissues. This offers new hope to patients who have inoperable or multifaceted tumors that cannot be treated surgically, or for just a patient who may be looking for a nonsurgical option.
The following is a list of tumors that can be treated using the CyberKnife® System at Capital Health.
