Stereotactic radiosurgery, which works by emitting high doses of radiation through a specific point in the body, is effective even when a tumor’s boundaries are not well-defined or accessible enough for traditional surgery. Watch this video featuring South Florida Radiation Oncology’s Dr. Jeffrey Buchsbaum for an overview of the Accuray CyberKnife.
The highly precise radiation beam of the Accuray CyberKnife allows it to work much as a surgeon’s scalpel would, destroying cancerous tissue while sparing the healthy structures around a tumor. It can work on both primary and metastatic tumors of the brain, spine, lungs, liver, prostate, and more.
To see if treatment with the Accuray CyberKnife may be right for you, contact one of South Florida Radiation Oncology’s physicians by calling (888) 823-9162. Check out our Facebook page to learn more about our technologies and upcoming events!
