Description

A robotic radiosurgery system in which patients are operated in a non-invasive way to treat different types of tumors, it is non-surgical in nature as it involves treating the tumour with high dose radiation beams with great accuracy. With the advent of cyberknife, the treatment of both types of tumours cancerous as well as non-cancerous in any part of the body became possible. Some of these body parts include brain, liver, spine, kidney, prostate and lung.

During Procedure

The treatment is done under the supervision and direction of a team of radiation oncologist, medical physicists and cyberknife physicians.
