CyberKnife is the latest evolution in radiation therapy, allowing Austin Cancer Center to apply radiation with near-surgical precision. A compact linear accelerator mounted on a robotic arm delivers a concentrated beam to the affected areas, which are targeted through advanced image-guidance cameras. The result is minimal damage to healthy tissue, few to no side effects, and no recovery time.

Patients with recurrent cancer or metastatic tumors that have spread to other areas of the body from the main tumor site or those whose health needs would be better served by an alternative to surgery or conventional radiation therapy should consider CyberKnife.

Advantages of Cyberknife:

  • Noninvasive, no incisions
  • No anesthesia or hospitalization required
  • Painless
  • Five or fewer outpatient treatment sessions
  • Little to no recovery time
  • Immediate return to daily activities
  • Few side effects and minimal radiation exposure to healthy tissue surrounding a tumor
