Prostate cancer patients are laser focused on treating their cancer with the fewest long and short-term side effects possible and the least number of disruptions to their lives.
And while that’s our typical patient’s goal, the experts at the CyberKnife Center of Miami, a state-of the-art radiation treatment center for prostate cancer, are laser focused on delivering the best treatment possible.
That treatment is SBRT with CyberKnife.
Best Prostate Cancer Treatment in Florida
CyberKnife, which uses a state-of-the-art form of radiation called stereotactic body radiation therapy or SBRT, has a 98% cure rate for early-stage prostate cancer. That’s just one reason more than 20,000 men have been treated with CyberKnife according to Accuray, the company that makes CyberKnife
Mike Cibula was one of those patients. The experts at CyberKnife Miami treated him 10 years ago, and he is still cancer free.
“It was five easy treatments over 10 days, and I had absolutely no side effects,” Mike says. “It did not slow me down at all, and I have not had a problem since. I do not feel any different today than before I knew I had prostate cancer.”
CyberKnife treats prostate cancer with five radiation treatments compared to forty-two sessions with traditional types of radiation. It has lower toxicity compared to other forms of radiation and the same cure rate, with less risk of side effects including erectile dysfunction or incontinence.
That means you get through your cancer treatment safer, easier, and back to your life faster than with other forms of radiation or surgery.
CyberKnife for Prostate Cancer
“CyberKnife has few side effects. Its pinpoint radiation beams target only the prostate, so we can give a much higher dose with a lot fewer treatments, leaving healthy surrounding tissue unharmed. There is over 30 years of published studies to support its safety and effectiveness,” says Dr. Mark Pomper, board-certified radiation oncologist and medical director of CyberKnife Miami.
Here are other advantages with CyberKnife for prostate cancer:
- It is quicker and has a high safety profile.
- Because it requires only five treatment sessions, typically over 10 days, CyberKnife causes less disruption to patients’ lives.
- It is noninvasive. So, there is no anesthesia or cutting like with surgery.
- It does not come with the risks of surgery like infection and extended periods of downtime.
- The CyberKnife radiation beams are exact and very precise. That means there is less risk of side effects including impotence and incontinence.
“Why take the risk of being cut open or waiting if you can have it taken care of quickly, efficiently and effectively with CyberKnife?” Mike says. “I am forever grateful to have learned about CyberKnife, and in particular, the CyberKnife Center of Miami.”
