CyberKnife Prostate Cancer Treatment
The CyberKnife® Robotic Radiosurgery System can treat tumors anywhere in the body, but especially excels at treating the prostate. Despite its name, the CyberKnife System is not a surgical procedure. In fact, there is no cutting involved. Instead, the CyberKnife System delivers high doses of radiation directly to the prostate in four to five treatment sessions in a treatment called prostate stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT), also referred to as prostate radiosurgery.
