About the CyberKnife Treatment

The CyberKnife system is a specialized machinery used for the non-invasive treatment of cancerous and non-cancerous tumors. It is sometimes used for the treatment of other conditions as well that are indicated to be treated with the help of radiation treatment.

CyberKnife technology is nowadays used for the treatment of lung, prostate, head and neck, spine, liver, kidney and pancreatic tumors. This form of treatment is used as an alternative for the tumors that cannot be operated or surgically excised and are complicated to handle.

The CyberKnife system comes with robotic precision that helps deliver accurate radiation doses to the area of the tumor. The treatment is usually concluded in one to five sessions – depending on the size, type and location of the tumor.

CyberKnife is a form of radiosurgery, that is, it delivers the results of a surgery but with the help of targeted radiation therapy.

How is CyberKnife Treatment performed?

CyberKnife treatment sessions are performed on an outpatient basis. Sometimes, the patient may be admitted a night prior to the treatment day for the planning purpose.

The patient is made to lie on a comfortable table with the mask or customized suit on. The robotic arms of the CyberKnife machine moves as per the breathing of the patient and delivers precise radiation to the tumor area. The patient remains in the recovery room for a few hours and then is discharged from the hospital.

Recovery from CyberKnife Treatment

Recovery after the procedure is immediate. Since the healthy tissues are not affected during treatment, the patient does not feel any side effects.

The patient is discharged from the hospital and called for a follow-up after a few days. The percentage of tumor left or removed through CyberKnife treatment is assessed after a few months of the procedure with the help of a fresh scan.
