|Cyberknife Treatment: Brain Tumors|
Stereotactic Radiosurgery is nothing new in neurosurgery. In fact, Radiosurgery has long been the domain of neurosurgeons (and radiation oncologists) because of its singular usefulness in the treatment of intracranial lesions.
At Las Vegas Cyberknife at Summerlin, we’re innovating how intracranial tumors and AVMs are treated using stereotactic Radiosurgery. During CyberKnife treatment, imaging cameras determine the actual location of the lesion. Each time the robotic arm repositions to deliver another fraction of the ablative dose, CyberKnife recalculates the true position of the target. The result is unsurpassed, submillimeter accuracy. And because there is no need for the stereotactic frame that the Gamma Knife requires, overall treatment time is reduced, anesthesia is unnecessary and the process is painless and comfortable. Also, without the frame, treatment can be delivered in fractions (up to five sessions), if necessary, to spare surrounding healthy tissue.
Yet, CyberKnife goes beyond intracranial lesions. Because highly accurate stereotactic Radiosurgery is achieved without frame, the ability to treat Radiosurgically now includes tumors and lesions of the spine. And at Las Vegas Cyberknife at Summerlin, we use the very latest CyberKnife hardware and software, including the world’s first next-generation linear accelerator. In other words, we have the power to treat more patients with improved accuracy, in less time, and with less patient risk and discomfort than is possible with Gamma Knife.
With Cyberknife, the range of tumors treatable with stereotactic Radiosurgical ablation has increased…and now includes extra-cranial lesions. Here are the clinical indications for which you can choose CyberKnife state-of-the-art treatment….
