Main Document

CyberKnife radiosurgery treatment for prostate cancer is rapid, effective and has no side effects, with the added benefit of being non-invasive.

Since 2003, the CyberKnife Center of Miami and the CyberKnife Center of Palm Beach have been providing this high tech cancer treatment longer than any facility in South Florida. (www.morsecyberknife.com)

Prostate Cancer is diagnosed in more than a quarter of a million men each year in the U.S. Treatment options in existence which are non-invasive with little to no side effects are practically none. CyberKnife treatment for prostate cancer as discussed in this video by James G. Schwade, M.D. executive director and Richard Boxer, M.D. (www.morsecyberknife.com/cyberknife-videos) provides an effective treatment overview. The CyberKnife treatment literally kills the cancer cells with a precisely targeted beam of radiation that does not affect surrounding tissue or organs.

CyberKnife Treatment requires:

No incision

No blood

No anesthesia

No pain

No recovery or rehabilitation time

According to one prostate patient recently treated Mr. Lane Crosby of Florida, "My friends were all mad that I could go out and play golf and they couldn't after their prostate cancer treatments." Crosby was treated in Palm Beach Gardens in 5 treatments at the CyberKnife Center of Palm Beach.

Incorporating a compact, lightweight linear accelerator mounted on a robotic arm, the CyberKnife provides unparalleled flexibility in targeting tumors and lesions. Advanced image guidance technology tracks patient and target position during treatment, ensuring sub millimeter accuracy. The CyberKnife with its Dynamic Tracking Software is cleared by the FDA to provide radio-surgery for lesions anywhere in the body when radiation treatment is indicated. The CyberKnife has often been used to radio-surgically treat otherwise un-treatable tumors or inoperable tumors. The system treats tumors at body sites unreachable by other stereotactic systems.
