Patients with cancer often face difficult decisions, especially when looking for treatment options. While there are many cancer centers in Las Vegas, only Las Vegas CyberKnife offers non-invasive cancer treatments with the CyberKnife System. This system is FDA-approved to treat cancer and has many benefits over traditional cancer treatments. As the first and only free-standing CyberKnife radiosurgery center in the Las Vegas area, Las Vegas CyberKnife is a great option for patients.
The CyberKnife System is the most advanced radiosurgery system available. This system allows cancer to be treated non-invasively by delivering high doses of radiation with extreme accuracy. Patients can avoid the long recovery times that come along with surgery. Despite being referred to as a radiosurgery system, there is no invasive surgery required. When receiving treatment with CyberKnife, patients can expect:
CyberKnife patients are able to receive treatment and then carry on with their everyday lives. The CyberKnife System is also able to track the tumor constantly through treatment to deliver the radiation precisely. Due to CyberKnife’s robotic, tumor-tracking technology, exposure to surrounding healthy organs is vastly minimized compared to other radiation therapy techniques.
For lung cancer, other treatments may require the patient to hold their breath or wear uncomfortable stabilizing hardware while radiation is delivered. However, with the CyberKnife System, tumor-tracking technology allows patients to receive treatment in a relaxing environment without interrupting their breathing cycles. Patients lie comfortably on a treatment couch while the robotic radiosurgery system tracks the tumor and automatically adjusts to subtle changes in body position, such as breathing.
Las Vegas CyberKnife is a great option for patients who prefer not to have surgery or whose health problems prevent surgery from being a viable treatment option. The CyberKnife cancer treatment is used to treat many different kinds of cancer including prostate, lung, brain, spine, pancreas, kidney, and liver. It is also used to treat the following:
With leading technology, the Las Vegas CyberKnife Cancer Center is the best option when considering treatment options.
