What is CyberKnife?

There were certain tumors at key areas such as brain, spine etc which were diagnosed as inoperable or untreatable. This was mainly because any kind of treatment such as surgery or radiotherapy in those areas will damage the healthy tissues around that area which may cause further complication.

CyberKnife offers those patients new hope for the treatment of tumors and lesions. It is a non-invasive robotic radiosurgery system designed to treat tumors anywhere in the body with sub-millimetre accuracy. CyberKnife has real-time image guidance which is similar to the cruise missile technology. The robotic design, coupled with real-time imaging, enables the CyberKnife System to deliver a maximum dose of radiation directly to the tumor from many different angles with pinpoint accuracy.

 

Advantages of CyberKnife:

  • Sub-millimetre accuracy
  • No damage to healthy tissue
  • Non–invasive
  • No anesthesia
  • Pain-Free
  • Fast recovery

Disadvantage of CyberKnife:

Comparing to other treatment methods for cancer such as surgery & radiotherapy, CyberKnife is expensive. However, you will get excellent result from it.

Areas where CyberKnife can be used:

  • Acoustic Neuroma
  • Brain Tumour
  • Head & Neck Cancer
  • Spinal Tumour
  • Kidney Cancer
  • Liver Cancer
  • Lung Cancer
  • Pancreatic Cancer
  • Prostate Cancer
