Las Vegas CyberKnife® Center offers new hope to cancer patients, as first and only free-standing Las Vegas cancer center to provide CyberKnife SBRT/SRS treatments. With the CyberKnife System, we provide an effective alternative even to those patients whose cancer is inoperable, who are too sick to undergo surgery or who wish to avoid surgery.
The CyberKnife System was approved by the FDA in 2001 for the treatment of tumors anywhere in the body. Unlike conventional external radiation therapies that take weeks or months to complete, CyberKnife treatments at our cancer center in Las Vegas are completed in one to five days, with minimal to no side effects.
With the CyberKnife System, sub-millimeter beams of radiation are delivered directly and precisely to the tumor, while minimizing the damage to the surrounding healthy tissue. There is no need for anesthesia, incisions or injections.
Conventional external radiation therapy systems deliver radiation in a broad swath, which not only impacts the cancerous tumor, but also the healthy tissue around it, resulting in severe short- and long-term side effects. These treatment systems also are not designed to address movement of the tumor during treatment, caused by breathing and other involuntary bodily functions.
The CyberKnife System addresses these conventional radiation limitations by using its robotic arm to deliver small beams of targeted radiation directly to the tumor, from virtually any angle around the patient. And, the CyberKnife System can adjust in real-time to compensate for the movement of the tumor or surrounding organs during treatment.
Of all the cancer centers in Las Vegas, at Las Vegas CyberKnife Center, you can be confident that you are receiving the most advanced SBRT/SRS treatments available.
