If you are considering CyberKnife treatment, you may have many questions about how it works, what to expect and whether it is a good choice for you.
What is CyberKnife?
CyberKnife is a non-surgical, painless technology that can reduce or eliminate certain lesions and tumors anywhere in the body. Using a combination of computers, robotics and image guidance systems, CyberKnife delivers a high dose of radiation strong enough to control or destroy tumor cells while limiting radiation exposure to surrounding healthy tissue.
