Advanced Technology. Safer, More Effective Treatments.

Earlier detection. Better results. Fewer risks. NCH advanced technology gives you all three. Your cancer is treated more safely and effectively. You enjoy a higher level of patient care. Our technologies include the CyberKnife and da Vinci Robotic Surgical System, which provide greater precision, less pain, faster recovery, and a lower risk of post-treatment side effects.

CyberKnife Stereotactic Radiosurgery System (SRS) 

A non-invasive alternative to surgery for cancer. It uses an extremely accurate, computer-controlled robotic arm to target cancer tumors with high dose radiation. Treatment duration is shorter than traditional radiation therapies for cancer. We were the first hospital in the Chicago area to offer this groundbreaking cancer-fighting technology.

da Vinci Robotic Surgical System

The gold standard for minimally invasive cancer surgery. This breakthrough technology allows a surgeon to view 3-D images of the surgical field while sitting at a computer console. Hand, wrist, and finger movements are translated into precise robotic arm movements. This gives surgeons greater precision and the patient less pain, fewer side effects and a shorter hospital stay after cancer surgery. Learn more about da Vinci Robotic Surgical System.

Wide Bore 4D CT

Accurately targets cancerous tumors with radiation while sparing the surrounding tissue.

Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT)

Radiation therapy that delivers a finely tuned dose of radiation, precisely tailored to match the tumor in three dimensions, while leaving the surrounding tissue relatively untouched.
