Robotic Device Is Changing the Way Cancer Patients Are Treated

E-mail Print PDF
A robotic device called the CyberKnife System is enabling physicians to aggressively treat tumors that were once considered inoperable. It delivers high-dose beams of radiation to tumors anywhere in the body from virtually any direction. This minimizes damage to surrounding healthy tissue or structures -- like the spinal cord. The system is so advanced it can follow a patient's movement to treat lung tumors that move with respiration.

Two years ago, Danny Davis was diagnosed with life-threatening stage-four melanoma that spread to his lung -- and faced the threat of surgery to remove part of his lung. Today, Danny is living a normal life following his painless, non-surgical, outpatient treatment with the CyberKnife System.

NOTE: Eligibility and treatment outcome with the CyberKnife System may vary from patient to patient; consult with a medical professional.
