Head & Neck Cancer – CyberKnife Treatment

Radiation Therapy Centers in Payson, Scottsdale, & Glendale, AZ


Fighting cancer is one of the most difficult challenges we can face in life – but it’s never something you have to face alone. At Palo Verde Cancer Specialists, we provide world-class cancer treatment from six state-of-the-art treatment centers spread throughout the greater Phoenix, AZ area. Our cancer doctors work with patients individually to create comprehensive treatment plans, and if you’ve been diagnosed with head & neck cancer, noninvasive CyberKnife treatment may be able to help.


A New Way to Fight Cancer


The CyberKnife System is a revolutionary cancer treatment that combines some of the most advanced medical technologies in the world. A completely noninvasive treatment, CyberKnife uses a precision robotic arm to deliver high-dose radiation directly to a cancerous tumor, with the capability to treat cancer almost anywhere in the body. CyberKnife radiation reaches sub-millimeter accuracy, meaning CyberKnife can destroy cancerous tumors without harming surrounding tissues.


In addition to robotics, CyberKnife combines advanced medical imaging with the powerful Synchrony Respiratory Tracking System, giving it the ability to track tumor movement due to things like breathing. CyberKnife can then monitor this movement and adjust for it in real time – allowing for high-dose radiation without the need for uncomfortable immobility braces.


Treating Head & Neck Cancer with CyberKnife


CyberKnife is especially powerful for treating head and neck cancer, as it’s completely noninvasive – there are no surgeries and no incisions, so we can often treat head and neck cancer without needing to create disfiguring scars. That said, your exact treatment plan always depends on the specifics of your cancer diagnosis.


In most cases, CyberKnife patients complete their treatment over the course of 1-5 consecutive treatment days. Each day, you’ll visit one of our cancer centers for your treatment appointment, which usually lasts an hour. During the procedure, all you have to do is lie back and let CyberKnife do the work – there are no uncomfortable braces necessary. After you complete your dose of radiation, we’ll closely monitor the area to determine the success of treatment and create a plan for next steps.
