Frequently Asked Questions

What is CyberKnife?

The CyberKnife Robotic Radiosurgery System is the first and only robotic radiosurgery system designed to treat tumors anywhere in the body, including the brain, spine, lung, liver, pancreas and prostate. It delivers high doses of radiation with pin-point, sub-millimeter accuracy. Because the CyberKnife System can deliver radiation beams from virtually any direction, the radiation beams are focused precisely on the tumor minimizing damage to the surrounding healthy tissue and nearby critical structures like the spinal cord or optic nerve.
