CyberKnife Treatment for CT Patients
We know that being diagnosed with cancer can be stressful. The physicians of Connecticut Radiation Oncology are here to help. We are the exclusive physician group to offer non-invasive CyberKnife treatment in CT.
How Does CyberKnife Work?
CyberKnife is simply a robotic machine that delivers precise and focused radiation to any part of the body. Despite its name, it involves no incisions, cuts, or surgery of any type.
What Are the Benefits of CyberKnife?
CyberKnife is the next stage in radiation therapy. It provides its patients:
- Fewer side effects: Many patients experience no or little side effects, unlike with traditional radiation.
- No downtime: The procedure does not require any anesthesia, and patients are ready to resume their day-to-day activities as soon as the procedure is over.
- Shorter treatment time: Instead of several weeks of radiation, CyberKnife treatment is completed within just one to two weeks, in only one to five sessions.
- Varied treatment possibilities: With its ability to treat anywhere in the body, it can be used for treatment of prostate, liver, pancreatic, brain, lung or spine cancers, as well as to treat trigeminal neuralgia.
