Frequently Asked Questions

What are the benefits of treatment with the CyberKnife System?


  • Pain free procedure - The CyberKnife treatment is a pain free non-invasive alternative to surgery. The treatment does not require anesthesia, effectively eliminating the risk of complications associated with traditional surgery.

  • Minimal recovery time - Compared to traditional surgery, which may require an overnight hospital stay, CyberKnife treatments are performed on an outpatient basis with little or no recovery time allowing patients to return to normal activities almost immediately.

  • Superior comfort - Patients experience improved comfort due to the system's frameless design, which eliminates the pain and inconvenience associated with invasive head and body frames typically associated with other radiosurgery systems.

  • Minimal side effects - There are minimal to no side effects associated with CyberKnife treatments. Because the CyberKnife System is non-invasive, patients face minimal risk and few post-treatment complications.

  • A new treatment option - The CyberKnife System gives new hope to patients who refuse surgery or have been diagnosed with surgically inoperable or complex tumors.
