CyberKnife Advanced Prostate Cancer Treatment

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.

UroNav and DynaCad are revolutionizing prostate cancer imaging and treatment:

Colorado CyberKnife is proud to announce the integration of best-in-class technologies UroNav and DynaCad (Advanced imaging for Prostate, Breast & Brain Cancer treatment) in our imaging facilities. We are the first center in Colorado to offer these life-saving technologies to our patients… Read more about UroNav and DynaCad imaging and treatment solutions

The CyberKnife System offers patients a minimally invasive, alternative prostate cancer treatment. Prostate cancer treatments with the CyberKnife System are typically performed on an outpatient basis over a period of four to five days, requiring no overnight hospital stays. Most patients experience minimal to no side effects with a quick recovery time.

Prostate Cancer Treatment Comparison

Prostate Cancer Treatment Comparison
The CyberKnife System is composed of a radiation delivery device, called a linear accelerator (or Linac), which is mounted on a robotic arm. The flexibility of the robotic arm enables the CyberKnife System to deliver radiation to tumors anywhere in the body, including the brain, head and neck, spine, lung, prostate, liver, pancreas, breast and other soft tissues. The CyberKnife System also utilizes sophisticated software and advanced imaging to track tumor and patient movement and adjust the beams of high-dose radiation to ensure treatment is delivered with a high degree of accuracy. Because of this exceptional tracking ability, the CyberKnife System eliminates the need for patients to have stabilizing frames bolted to their head or limit their breathing during treatment to minimize movement of the tumor.

With the CyberKnife System, patients can complete treatment in one to five days, compared to the weeks it takes to complete a course of conventional radiation therapy. In addition, it provides a pain-free, non-surgical option for patients who have inoperable or surgically complex tumors, or who may be looking for an alternative to surgery…
