Overview

What is CyberKnife?
CyberKnife is a noninvasive alternative to surgery for many patients and offers new hope to those who have been diagnosed with a benign or malignant tumor.

How Does CyberKnife Work?
Because of its unsurpassed maneuverability and robotic design, CyberKnife can emit radiation from virtually any direction to conform to the unique shape of any tumor. This is significantly different from conventional radiation therapy that delivers more radiation to healthy tissue surrounding the tumor.

CyberKnife vs. Other Treatments
Boston Medical Center's CyberKnife treatment can be a more effective and less invasive alternative to both conventional radiation therapy and surgery.
