What is the CyberKnife® Radiosurgery System?

CyberKnife® Radiosurgery is the non-invasive alternative to surgery for the treatment and removal of cancerous tumors from the body. By delivering high doses of radiation, with extreme accuracy, we offer new hope to patients who have inoperable or surgically complex tumors. The Cyberknife system is also for those who may be looking for an alternative to more invasive surgery.
What do we treat?

At Las Vegas Cyberknife at Summerlin, we’re giving patients new reasons for hope in their fight against cancer. To begin with, CyberKnife creates cancer treatment options that previously didn’t exist. For tumors considered medically inoperable and patients who are ineligible for surgery or chemotherapy, CyberKnife stereotactic radiosurgery can serve as an outstanding alternative for the treatment of:
Brain Tumors Spine Tumors
Radiosurgery has long been the
domain of neurosurgeons becauseof its
singular usefulness in the treatment of
intracranial lesions.
It’s true that some tumor types are
resistant to the radiobiological effect of
conventional radiation therapy. But they
aren’t resistant to the Cyberknife.
Lung Tumors Pancreas
It’s true that some tumor types are
resistant to the radiobiological effect of
conventional radiation therapy. But they
aren’t resistant to Radiosurgical ablation.
We can treat inoperable patients, shrink
tumors for less radical resections,
destroy radioresistant tumors and treat
previously treated.

System Comparison
Because CyberKnife is noninvasive, it can
treat patients who can’t endure surgery or
who have a high risk for postoperative
complications.
CyberKnife often is used alone to treat
these lesions but can also be combined
with surgery and other treatments to
maximize treatment benefit.
Head & Neck
Kidneys
For tumor types known to have a high
likelihood of recurrence, CyberKnife’s low
cumulative exposure make it an ideal
treatment option.
While conventional radiation therapy
doesn’t do as well in the treatment of these kinds of lesions, CyberKnife’s ablative
radiation dose is quite effective.
