The CyberKnife® System attacks hard-to-reach tumors almost anywhere in the body—without incisions, anesthesia or an overnight hospital stay.

BMC's CyberKnife offers hope to someone with a cancerous or benign tumor.

If you or someone you know has a cancerous or benign tumor or condition—even those considered inoperable or difficult to treat—Boston Medical Center's CyberKnife Robotic Radiosurgery System offers hope. This state-of-the-art breakthrough treats tumors almost anywhere in the body, by delivering focused beams of radiation with pinpoint accuracy, while limiting the radiation dose to the surrounding healthy tissues.

Because of this precision, more powerful and effective doses of radiation can be administered, all with little or no side effects. There's no surgery or drugs, no pain or fatigue. Most patients return to normal activities directly from their treatment.

CyberKnife is very effective at treating numerous cancers including those in the head, neck and spine as well as tumors of the lung, pancreas, liver and kidney. Examples of benign conditions treated with CyberKnife include meningiomas, acoustic neuromas, pituitary adenomas and trigeminal neuralgia.
