Overview

What is CyberKnife®?

The precision, power and accuracy of CyberKnife far exceed conventional radiation treatments. 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. It can be used to treat tumors almost anywhere in the body, including the brain, head and neck, liver, lung, pancreas and spine. CyberKnife is also useful for certain noncancerous conditions, such as arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) and trigeminal neuralgia.

CyberKnife uses highly focused and precise beams of radiation to treat many types of tumors, almost anywhere in the body. Despite its name, there is no actual "knife" used in the procedure. In fact, no part of the CyberKnife System physically touches the patient during treatment.
