CyberKnife® Radiosurgery

Advanced technology delivers alternative, pain-free cancer treatment

CyberKnife Radiosurgery offers a safe, pain-free procedure if you have complex tumors or need a surgery alternative. This radiation treatment does not involve cutting—it delivers radiation beams directly to the tumor, avoiding damage to the rest of your body. The system uses image guidance and computer-assisted robotics to continuously track the tumor, correcting treatment delivery in real time.

Mission Hospital also uses CyberKnife® to treat conditions such as trigeminal neuralgia and arteriovenous malformations (AVM).  This pain-free alternative helps vascular brain disorder patients experience decreased pain levels and seizures.
