About CyberKnife Stereotactic Radiosurgery
This painless technology offers noninvasive delivery of high dose X-rays focused precisely on a targeted region to treat tumors, brain and spine conditions, and cancers of the pancreas, prostate, liver and lungs. A flexible robotic arm with specialized tracking capabilities is used to reach body regions and significantly lowers the amount of radiation delivered to surrounding tissues.
