Advantages of treatment
The newly developed design of the Cyberknife system enables treatments not only in the area of the brain but also throughout the spine and spinal cord or in other parts of the body. While the treatment is typically administered in a single fraction, there is the additional option to fractionate (or split) the single dose into 2 - 5 smaller doses.
In such a way also lesions in very sensitive body parts can be eliminated while maximally sparing the surrounding healthy tissue.
Pain free surgery
The newly developed Cyberknife technology offers pain-free, outpatient "surgery". There are no complications from fixations, no anaesthesia, no surgical incisions. No inpatient hospital stay is required, also no subsequent cure or rehabilitation time.
