About CyberKnife

 

CyberKnife is a state-of-the-art radiation therapy system that combines some of the most cutting-edge medical technologies in the world to produce a revolutionary cancer treatment. Using a precision robotic arm, CyberKnife is able to deliver high-dose radiation to virtually any part of the body, all with sub-millimeter accuracy. That means CyberKnife can provide comfortable, effective cancer treatment without damaging tissues surrounding the tumor.

 

In addition to precision robotics, CyberKnife uses the Synchrony Respiratory Tracking System, allowing it to track tumor movement caused by breathing and other involuntary motion. CyberKnife can then compensate for these movements in real time – so you don’t have to wear uncomfortable braces or immobility devices.

 

CyberKnife Treatment for Colorectal Cancer

 

We can often use CyberKnife to treat colorectal cancer, especially if the cancer is diagnosed early on. Whether the tumor has developed in the lining of the colon or the rectum, your cancer doctor will work with you to develop a comprehensive treatment plan that eliminates the tumor and helps you overcome cancer.

 

Every patient and treatment course is different, but generally, CyberKnife patients receive their treatment over the course of one to five consecutive treatment appointments. Each appointment lasts roughly an hour, and the process is convenient and comfortable: just lie down on the treatment couch and let CyberKnife deliver high-dose radiation directly to your cancer. After the treatment, we’ll carefully monitor your tumor to determine the efficacy of treatment and create a post-treatment plan based on those results.
