The CyberKnife System is a non-surgical option for brain tumor treatment that offers many advantages compared to conventional radiation therapy such as the Gamma Knife. The CyberKnife System uses real-time image tracking technology to continually track, detect, and verify the beam is on target, delivering radiation with surgical precision, without surgery. It is also able to rotate and move with its unique robotic arm to treat the tumor from virtually any angle.
If it is determined that the CyberKnife System is right for you, you will undergo imaging tests to define the location and size of the tumor. Data from an MRI, CT, and/or PET scan will be used by our team of board-certified physicians to prepare a personalized treatment plan that will most effectively ablate the tumor, while sparing healthy surrounding nerves and tissues.
Before you undergo brain tumor radiosurgery with the CyberKnife system, our technicians will also create a comfortable, soft, mesh mask customized to your unique facial structure. The non-invasive, mesh mask will help you to keep your head still during the short treatment session.
