A brain tumor diagnosis is a shock whether it be for you or a loved one, and after receiving the news it can be hard to know where to go. Brain tumors range from a spectrum of non-cancerous (benign) to cancerous (malignant) and many treatments can be highly invasive, painful, and come with a host of unpleasant side effects. But with CyberKnife, a new kind of precision radiation treatment for cancerous and noncancerous tumors, you have your best chance ever to hope.
CyberKnife is a new type of radiation treatment that uses focused beams of radiation to deliver a dose of radiation to a tumor in the body. It’s highly precise and accurate, using real-time motion tracking technology to deliver the beam to only the tumor cells and minimize the impact on surrounding tissues, and it can be performed in 1-5 treatments. CyberKnife makes use of the latest advancements in radiation and imaging technology to provide the most accurate and individualized cancer treatment on the market.
Unlike surgery, CyberKnife is a non-invasive and painless treatment for brain cancer tumors. It requires no surgery, and unlike Gamma Knife treatment, the patient wears only a comfortable mesh mask during treatment and can spread out the initial scans, planning, and treatment doses over the course of several days or less. Additionally, CyberKnife is capable of delivering radiation doses from almost any angle, allowing us to select the perfect avenue to deliver the most effective beams of radiation while causing the least impact on surrounding, healthy tissues.
Brain tumors can be a harrowing condition, but with CyberKnife, there’s hope. If you’d like to find out more about how CyberKnife can help you overcome cancer and reclaim your life, call us today at (602) 441-3845 or reach out to us at our contact page to schedule a consultation.
