Overview and Indications

Stereotactic radiosurgery focuses high-power energy on a small area of the body. The CyberKnife® Robotic Radiosurgery System provides pain-free, non-invasive treatment of both cancerous and non-cancerous tumors anywhere in the body. Using image-guidance and computer-controlled robotics, USC physicians deliver high-energy radiation to the tumor from virtually any direction with sub-millimeter accuracy. This outpatient procedure requires minimal recovery time, and is ideal for treating tumors in the prostate, lung, brain, spine, liver, pancreas and kidney. For patients with complex or inoperable tumors, or for those looking for an alternative to surgery, this treatment offers new hope in the fight against cancer.
