As a leading cancer treatment provider serving the greater Phoenix, AZ area, we help patients face even the most serious forms of cancer every single day – and thanks to the advanced treatment technology at our cancer centers, we can often provide treatment where other oncologists cannot.

CyberKnife for Acoustic Neuroma

CyberKnife is a revolutionary radiation therapy system that combines an array of advanced medical technology to create a powerful, convenient cancer treatment option. CyberKnife is a completely noninvasive option, using a specialized robotic arm to deliver high-dose radiation to the site of a tumor, killing cancerous cells without the need for surgery. Best of all, CyberKnife’s motion tracking capabilities allow it to track and compensate for involuntary movement in real time. This means that with CyberKnife treatment, there’s no need for uncomfortable braces or immobility devices: you simply lie on the treatment couch and let CyberKnife do the work.

Treating Acoustic Neuroma with CyberKnife

CyberKnife is a highly convenient option for treating acoustic neuroma because it’s entirely noninvasive. While a minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery is available for some acoustic neuroma patients, CyberKnife eliminates the issue altogether, using radiation to eliminate the tumor without a single incision.

In addition to being noninvasive, CyberKnife also offers a simple, convenient treatment process. Most patients complete their treatment over the course of 1-5 consecutive days, and treatment appointments last no longer than an hour or so. Treatment comes with virtually no discomfort, and many patients feel well enough to continue going about their day after the appointment.
