CyberKnife

CyberKnife radiosurgery is not surgery and doesn’t use a scalpel. It is very precise radiation therapy used to treat tumors anywhere in the body while minimizing damage to surrounding tissues. It offers advantages for treating tumors that may move with breathing. Memorial has one of the world’s busiest CyberKnife centers, and treated more lung cancers in 2007 and 2008 than any other CyberKnife location in the world. Please call one of Memorial’s experienced CyberKnife experts to learn whether CyberKnife may benefit you at 904-391-1100.

The CyberKnife Cancer Center features the CyberKnife System from Accuray - the world's most accurate radiosurgery instrument. Click here to watch video.
