Step by Step Recovery Guide

Step 1

 

Painless Treatment: During treatment, the patient is fitted with the custom mask or body mold made in Step 2. Usually, no Anaesthesia is required. The CyberKnife robot moves around the patient and delivers radiation. Throughout the procedure, an imaging system verifies that the radiation is precisely on target.

 

Step 2

  Completion: In general, most of the treatments generally span 30 minutes to 60 minutes, fractionated again to 30 - 60 minutes which essentially means no more spending hours at the hospital and utilizing that time for the things that patients want to do. In some cases where respiratory tracking is used, treatments may take 60-90 minutes.
 

Step 3

  Follow-up: Patients will need post-treatment imaging studies to share with their physician at a follow-up appointment.
