For patients diagnosed with spinal tumors, CyberKnife® treatment offers an important nonsurgical alternative for those who are unable or unwilling to undergo surgery. Some patients may have tumors located near critical structures such as the spinal cord and require a noninvasive treatment that offers precision and minimal radiation exposure to surrounding tissue and critical anatomy.
Stereotactic radiosurgery with CyberKnife provides a nonsurgical treatment option for patients diagnosed with spinal tumors. High-doses of radiation are delivered with extreme accuracy to tumors in five or fewer treatments,with minimal to no side effects.
