Welcome to CyberKnife of Indianapolis
CyberKnife of Indianapolis offers the community a
revolutionary treatment for solid tumors and metastatic
disease. Using image-guided robotics and highly advanced
tracking technology, the CyberKnife™ Radiosurgery System
targets tumors and other lesions in the body while
constantly adjusting to a patient’s movements. With
sub-millimeter accuracy, CyberKnife™
focuses beams of
radiation into the tumor from hundreds of different angles,
leaving the healthy surrounding tissue unharmed. Patients
are awake and relaxed through the entire treatment session,
which takes anywhere from 30-90 minutes. Treatment may be
delivered in 1 to 5 sessions depending on the condition. The result is a
painless procedure with minimal side effects and little or no recovery
time. Patients can then return home to pursue other activities or
spend time with their families immediately after treatment.
Until now, radiosurgery could only treat tumors of the head and neck using uncomfortable procedures and equipment. CyberKnife changes that. With its robotic arm, CyberKnife can treat benign and malignant tumors anywhere in the body. Tumors that were once considered inoperable can now be treated. And, patients that once had only conventional surgery options, or no options at all, can benefit from this new technology in the fight against cancer.
CyberKnife is more than a tool on the road to recovery. It is the future of cancer therapy.
