Though its name may conjure images of scalpels and surgery, CyberKnife Radiosurgery is an innovative treatment for tumors and other neurological conditions that does not involve traditional surgery techniques. Since its debut in 1994, the CyberKnife system has been used to treat more than 60,000 patients worldwide. We have one of the most recent enhancements of CyberKnife technology at Brookwood, offering powerful and precise treatment of cancerous and non-cancerous tumors and lesions throughout the body.
CyberKnife gives patients new hope for the treatment of tumors, including those previously diagnosed as inoperable or untreatable. It also provides an excellent non-invasive alternative to traditional surgery. CyberKnife at Brookwood provides advanced technology to improve our patient’s quality of life and significantly reduce the amount of time needed to fully treat both malignant and benign tumors.
