Cyberknife

The CyberKnife® is a state-of-the-art, radiotherapy equipment for robotic radiosurgery that allows radiation oncologists to treat pathologies painlessly, without the need for an operation.
CyberKnife® uses pencil beams of radiation which can be directed at any part of the body, from any direction with the help of a robotic arm. The system tracks the tumour's position, detects any movement of the tumour or patient, and automatically corrects its positioning .It then targets the tumour with multiple beams of high-energy radiation, destroying abnormal tissue without damaging surrounding areas.The treatment is so accurate that it's now possible to treat tumours previously thought to be inoperable. Although the results of treatment do not always show immediately, in most cases, the procedure will initially stop the growth of tumours, before gradually reducing their size.As there is no open surgery, the risk complications normally associated with an operation are eliminated, as is the need for a long recovery time. This makes treatment suitable even for those who are not well enough to cope with surgery. Most patients leave the hospital the same day.
