World's first and the only Robotic Radiosurgery System that is non invasive, effective and painless alternative to surgery in the treatment of tumors and selected medical conditions present anywhere in the body. Cyberknife consists of a radiation delivery device called LINAC which stands for Linear Accelerator and it is mounted on a robotic arm.
Cyberknife, a stereotactic Radiosurgery system, is an amalgamation of three dimensional localization of the target and emission of high energy radiation beams from multiple angles hitting the tumor or the lesion with precision. As a result of pin point accuracy it allows delivery of high dose of the radiation to its target with the least damage or compromise to the surrounding healthy tissue or critical structure. The ultimate goal of the therapy is to destoy the cancer cells non invasively, with high radiation dose.
Q 1. How does it work?
A1. Cyberknife involves the delivery of beams of high radiation to the target area or the tumor where the treatment is required, with remarkable accuracy and spares the surrounding healthy tissue from the harmful effects of the radiation.
Q2 Is it a surgery? Its name suggests so.
A2. No, absolutely not! It is a misnomer.Going by its name, it appears to be a surgery that uses scalpels and involves cuts or incisions. However, in contrast, it is absolutely non invasive. Also, it is frameless radiosurgery system.
Q3 What is the usual duration of the treatment?
A3. The Cyberknife treatment usually lasts from 1 to 5 days. It is purely determined by your team of specialists after carefully examining you and your medical condition.
Q4. Whom is cyberknife best recommended for?
A4. Cyberknife is best recommended for the patients
1. Who choose painless and non invasive alternative to surgery.
2. Who have inoperable or Surgically complex cancerous and non cancerous tumors anywhere in the body.
Q5.What are the benefits of Cyberknife Radiosurgery treatment?
A5. The benefits of Cyberknife are:
i. Delivers beams of high dose radiation to cancerous or non cancerous tumors in almost any part of the body.
ii. Ensures high degree of accuracy and precision due to unmatched tracking ability.
iii. No anesthesia required
iv. Outpatient procedure
v. Patient can breathe normally and be comfortable during treatment with cyberknife.
vi. Absolutely Non invasive, no rigid head or body stabilizing frames required.
vii. Pain free alternative to surgery.
viii.Early resumption of normal activity.
ix. Short duration of treatment and quick recovery.
x. Reduce the short and long term side effects associated with conventional radiation treatment.
xi. Has an edge over other Radiosurgery systems.
Q6. Is Cyberknife right for me?
A6. This decision will be taken by your expert medical team depending upon your medical condition, type, size, location and extent of the tumor/s and any other co morbid condition and above all their clinical expertise regarding the role of cyberknife in your case.
You would appreciate the fact that sometimes different approaches can be taken in dealing with a given condition and different opinions may exist. Cyberknife has an unprecedented versatility and can be utilized to treat cancer in all its stages and more often can be combined with other treatment modalities such as surgery, chemotherapy and traditional radiation therapy.
Q7. How is Cyberknife better than other radiosurgery systems?
A7. Cyberknife has an edge over other Radiosurgery systems. It is practically impossible to restrict the patient’s and the tumor’s movement associated with internal organs movement.Cyberknife has overcome these limitations during radiation treatment. However, with other Radiosurgery systems, several immobilization techniques such as attachment of a metal frame directly to the skull with the help of bolts, compression of the abdomen to restrict breathing movements, are incorporated to address movement related issues. Although these techniques are invariably invasive and lead to discomfort of the patient.
