    CyberKnife at Apollo Hospitals

    Welcome to Apollo Hospitals, where advanced technology meets compassionate care. In this ever-evolving world of healthcare, we are proud to be much ahead with the state-of-the-art CyberKnife Robotic Radiosurgery System. This revolutionary technology- the world’s first and only robotic radiosurgery system that treats tumours anywhere in one’s body with an accuracy level up to the sub-millimetre range. CyberKnife represents a significant innovation in cancer treatment, offering a non-invasive alternative to surgery.

    Learn how CyberKnife- our most modern robotic radiosurgery system transforms cancer treatment with its matchless precision and minimal invasiveness.

    What is CyberKnife?

    CyberKnife is a state-of-the-art non-invasive radiation therapy system that administers high radiation dosages with pinpoint accuracy. This is a simple cancer treatment process that doesn’t require an incision or anaesthesia. Cyberknife uses high-dose radiation beams to cure tumours, both benign and cancerous, without causing damage to healthy tissues. It adapts to the patient’s breathing and movements in real-time, ensuring tumours receive maximum radiation while sparing healthy tissue. This revolutionary approach provides a safer option for patients with inoperable or high-risk tumours, giving new hope where options were once limited.

    Why Choose CyberKnife at Apollo Hospitals?

    Apollo Hospitals are at the forefront of medical excellence, constantly introducing cutting-edge technologies to give our patients the best treatment possible. Our best oncologists and multidisciplinary team ensure personalised treatment plans tailored to each patient’s needs. With CyberKnife, experience fewer sessions, no incisions, and quicker recovery times compared to traditional surgery.

    Conditions We Treat with CyberKnife

    The FDA has authorised the CyberKnife system for the treatment of cancers, cancerous or benign, that can occur anywhere in the body. It can be used for all stages of cancer, from stage I to IV (including metastases). CyberKnife is helpful in the treatment of several tumours and diseases, such as:

    • Cancers involving the brain
    • Cancers involving the spine
    • Pancreatic cancers
    • Lung cancers
    • Trigeminal neuralgia
    • Metastatic liver cancers
    • Benign brain tumours
    • Abnormalities in the brain’s blood vessels
    • Orbital lymphomas, metastatic orbital malignancies, and orbital inflammations (tumours or inflammations around the eye)

    Benefits of CyberKnife Treatment

    Compared to surgery and other radiation treatments, Cyberknife treatment has numerous benefits, such as:

    • Precision: Sub-millimeter precision locates cancers while safeguarding surrounding healthy tissue.
    • Non-invasive: No anaesthetic or incisions, which shortens healing periods and minimises problems.
    • Convenience: Usually finished in one to five sessions, each lasting thirty to ninety minutes.
    • Minimal Side Effects: It has fewer adverse effects on patients than conventional radiation therapy.
    • Excellent results: CyberKnife has been demonstrated to be more successful than standard radiation therapy and as effective as surgery in treating most early-stage cancers.
    • Tracks movement: CyberKnife meticulously tracks tumour movement due to breathing, coughing, swallowing, and other actions, modifying radiation beams as necessary.

    FAQs

    Q1. What differentiates CyberKnife from conventional radiation therapy?

    Ans. CyberKnife is unique from typical radiation treatment because of its robotic accuracy and ability to administer highly concentrated radiation that adjusts in real-time to the patient’s motions. In contrast to conventional techniques, it reduces the damage done to nearby healthy tissue, necessitates lesser treatment sessions, and leads to fewer side effects and quicker recovery periods.

    Q2. How often can I get treated with CyberKnife?

    Ans. CyberKnife treatments are normally given to patients over several days, with appointments being planned daily or every other day. The precise frequency is determined by the treatment plan that the medical team develops depending on the condition being treated as well as the patient’s unique health needs.

    Q3. Does the CyberKnife procedure have any negative side effects?

    Ans. Depending on the area being treated, side effects from CyberKnife therapy might range from negligible to severe. Temporary weariness, slight skin irritation, and localised swelling are common side effects. Serious side effects are rare due to the treatment’s precise targeting, which minimises damage to surrounding healthy tissue.

    Q4. Is CyberKnife better than surgery?

    Ans. In some cases, CyberKnife provides a noninvasive surgical substitute that allows for precision tumour targeting with little damage to healthy tissue. It could be recommended for individuals who are not candidates for surgery or who want a less intrusive procedure. However, suitability depends on the specific medical condition and individual patient factors.

    Q5. What is the CyberKnife treatment’s success rate?

    Ans. Although studies reveal excellent rates of tumour control and patient survival often surpassing 90% for early-stage tumours, the effectiveness of CyberKnife treatment varies depending on the kind and stage of the cancer. It is a popular alternative for many patients due to its accuracy and few adverse effects, which add to its efficacy.
