CyberKnife is an advanced technology that delivers a specialized form of radiation therapy called stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT). It is the only system that continuously stays on target despite patient and tumor motion and tumors can be treated anywhere in the body.
The prostate cancer treatment is painless and very easy to tolerate. Most prostate cancer treatment sessions typically last for 30-60 minutes and are performed in 5 or fewer treatments depending on the size and location of your tumor. The patient lies on a treatment table while the robotic arm moves around your body delivering high doses of radiation directly to the tumor. Using image-guided robotics, the CyberKnife can precisely and non-invasively dissolve tumors while sparing the normal healthy tissue surrounding the tumor. This revolutionary prostate cancer treatment has helped save many lives while maintaining a quality of life. After having a treatment session, many of our prostate cancer patients at CyberKnife Center of Miami leave to play a round of golf, go to the gym or meet a friend for lunch. It’s that easy!
