Treatment Comparisons

Accuracy, Versatility and Comfort Give CyberKnife the Advantage
The most advanced, full-body, non-invasive cancer treatment available, CyberKnife improves on earlier therapies by providing treatment that is more accurate, more versatile and more comfortable for patients. Unlike traditional stereotactic techniques, such as Gamma Knife, that rely on a rigid metal frame anchored to a patient’s skull for head immobilization and target localization, the CyberKnife System is completely non invasive, with no incision, no blood loss, no pain and minimal, if any, damage to surrounding tissue. Also, because of CyberKnife’s unique flexibility and precision, this revolutionary system provides the widest range of treatment options available.
