State-of-the-art CyberKnife technology is giving hope to patients in Miami and around the world who want an alternative to conventional prostate surgery or radiation therapy.
For decades, undergoing prostate cancer treatment usually meant suffering through debilitating side effects and took weeks or months to complete. Now, thanks to the CyberKnife system, treatment can be completed within a matter of days and with few to mild side effects, if any.
The bottom line is that CyberKnife technology allows us to manage and treat cancer like a chronic disease, similar to treating diabetes, while maintaining a quality of life throughout the treatment process.
Our team of board-certified radiation oncologists, surgeons, medical physicists and radiation therapists provides a level of skill and precision that matches our years of experience. They are among some of the most experienced radiosurgery specialists in the United States, which is why they are often asked to train other centers around the world on how to use the CyberKnife in the most effective way with the most positive outcomes.
Having treated thousands of patients throughout Florida, the U.S. and abroad, CyberKnife Miami is an international destination for patients seeking CyberKnife treatment. Our center introduced the first CyberKnife program to the southeast United States. We are the most experienced and qualified team in the South Florida. Our extensive clinical and technical research experience help our physician to determine if you are an appropriate candidate for CyberKnife treatment.
WHAT MAKES THE CYBERKNIFE SO UNIQUE?
The unique design of the CyberKnife system allows it to deliver targeted radiation therapy to lesions throughout the body, without the use of a frame. The CyberKnife can perform staged radiosurgery in 1 to 5 treatments. This makes the CyberKnife system especially beneficial for treating larger tumors and lesions near sensitive structures because it better protects the surrounding healthy tissue.
CyberKnife Radiosurgery eliminates the risk of complications and lengthy recovery time associated with traditional open surgery. CyberKnife treatment is painless, with no cutting or anesthesia involved. As an outpatient procedure, CyberKnife radiosurgery also allows for a better quality of life during and after treatment which enables you to immediately resume your normal activities. Our goal is to give you back the life you know and love!
