Precision without Incision
One of the UK’s most senior Clinical Oncologists is St Bartholomew's Dr Nick Plowman and he heads this section. In his article 'CyberKnife® – cancer search and destroy’ he explains the use of this powerful new treatment option as both a stand-alone method and in collaboration with other treatments such as chemotherapy.

Then Dr Andrew Gaya, Consultant Clinical Oncologist at Guy’s & St Thomas’ Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, explains: “Most advances in cancer treatment are small steps forward, but occasionally there is a giant leap.”

CyberKnife® has provided this leap and is now a viable alternative treatment option for:

Major operations such as lung and liver resections,
•Removal of pancreas and prostatectomy
•Tumours in the body
•Tumours in the brain and spine including brain metastases, primary brain or brainstem tumours, pituitary tumours, acoustic neuromas, meningiomas, arteriovenous malformations and trigeminal neuralgia.
