RADIATION THERAPY IS PLAYING A MUCH BIGGER ROLE IN PROSTATE CANCER TREATMENT WITH EXCELLENT OUTCOMES!
Don Kearns is one of many of our prostate cancer survivors successfully treated at the CyberKnife Center of Miami using noninvasive, targeted radiation therapy.
He did a lot of research, talked to seven doctors before choosing CyberKnife over surgery, or any other treatment option for prostate cancer.
Many men still do not realize that treating prostate cancer doesn’t have to mean surgery and that there are non-invasive options.
The CyberKnife System was designed to provide successful treatment for prostate cancer with as little impact on a patient’s life as possible so you can quickly and painlessly get back to a healthy, full life.
CyberKnife for prostate cancer is backed by decades of positive scientific research.
The CyberKnife System delivers high doses of external beams of radiation with the most accuracy to destroy tumors with sub-millimeter precision.
While surgery is traditionally the most common interventional treatment for early stage prostate cancer, radiation therapy is increasingly used because it is both non-invasive and highly effective.
Men with localized prostate cancer who are treated with external beam radiation therapy have a cure rate of 98%.
95.5% for intermediate-risk prostate cancer.
91.3% for high-risk prostate cancer.
Depending on the specifics of the patient and the cancer, radiation therapy might be used:
• As the first interventional treatment
• In conjunction with hormone therapy
• To treat recurrence after surgery
• To treat recurrence after initial radiation therapy
To relieve symptoms and control growth in more advanced cancers.
