CyberKnife® for Brain Tumors

CyberKnife® is a non-invasive way to treat both benign and malignant primary brain and metastatic tumors in 5 treatments or less. The CyberKnife® System’s treatment accuracy is unrivaled. Its ability to treat tumors with pin-point accuracy is unmatched by other radiation therapy and radiosurgery systems.

The CyberKnife® System can essentially “paint” the tumor with radiation allowing it to precisely deliver treatment to the tumor alone, sparing surrounding healthy tissue.

  • Clinical studies have shown that patients have achieved better tumor control and enhanced performance status following the use of CyberKnife® treatments.
  • The CyberKnife® System is a frameless radiation delivery system. With other technologies, immobilization devices such as a head frame bolted to the patients’ skull are used to prevent movement. The CyberKnife® System is designed to automatically adjust for movement and therefore does not require a head frame.
  • The CyberKnife® System has been proven to deliver radiation to the brain with sub-millimeter precision, which means minimal radiation is delivered to the surrounding healthy brain tissue.
