CYBERKNIFECyberKnife Treatment Provided at the Nicewonder Cancer Treatment Center located at Bristol Regional Medical CenterThe CyberKnife offers non-invasive treatment for tumors in the brain and spine, including some that were previously considered inoperable. CyberKnife is a robotic stereosurgery system that provides a painless alternative to traditional surgery. CyberKnife’s computer-controlled robotic arm allows it to treat tumors unreachable by other stereotactic radiosurgery systems (SRS).

MAJOR BENEFITS OF THE CYBERKNIFE INCLUDE:

  • Better quality of life during and after treatment
  • More accurate radiation targeting
  • Better access to hard-to-reach, larger or previously inoperable tumors
  • Ability to treat multiple tumors at different locations during a single session
  • Vastly better control for minimizing the dose to the tissue.
  • Reduces the risk for complications like infections and loss of hearing that are associated with traditional surgery.
