CyberKnife®

Cutting-Edge Cancer Treatment in New Jersey

The CyberKnife® Robotic Radiosurgery System is the world’s first and only robotic radiosurgery system designed to treat tumors throughout the body noninvasively. This is a unique cancer treatment that delivers high dosages of radiation to tumors in the body.

Radiation is a powerful tool for fighting cancer, but in most treatments dosages are limited so as not to damage other tissues in the body. CyberKnife was designed with accuracy in mind, and is able to so finely pinpoint tumors in the body that it can deliver increased amounts of radiation with only minimal damage to the surrounding tissue.

Advantages of CyberKnife

In most circumstances, removing a tumor requires invasive surgery. CyberKnife can treat tumors throughout the body without making a single incision. The process is entirely painless and does not require anesthesia or hospitalization.

Radiation from CyberKnife is delivered by a robotic arm that circles around the patient and attacks the tumor from various angles. Depending on the treatment plan you decide on with our staff, each session lasts 30 to 90 minutes over the course of 5 appointments in a 2 week period.

Benefits of CyberKnife include:

  • Radiation treatment with unrivaled precision
  • A Painless procedure that can be done on an outpatient basis.
  • Only 5 sessions required in a 2 week period, opposed to the 30 to 40 sessions needed for conventional radiation therapy
  • Research-tested for safety and has very low risk of complication
  • Minimal side effects
  • Can treat tumors that manifest virtually anywhere in the body

In the months following your CyberKnife treatment, our staff will call you in for check-ups to ensure that the tumor is shrinking. The time it takes for the treatment to take full effect vary depending on the size and location of the tumor.

CyberKnife is covered under most forms of insurance. Our staff can also speak with your insurance carrier on your behalf to determine whether or not your treatment will be covered.

The CyberKnife treatment is available at several of our clinics. Contact Us today to learn more.
