Combined with John C. Lincoln's long-standing commitment to compassionate medical care, CyberKnife technology is recognized worldwide as a highly successful cancer treatment. Since 1988, more than 100,000 patients from all parts of the world have benefitted from the CyberKnife stereotactic radiosurgery system.

Unlike open surgery, stereotactic radiosurgery is incision-free and non-invasive — it is performed completely outside of the body, without touching the skin. High-powered X-rays focus precisely on a small area of the body, with minimal exposure to surrounding healthy tissue.

CyberKnife cancer treatments help patients fight the most challenging cancers more effectively, with faster treatments, fewer side effects, and quicker recoveries.

CyberKnife VSI Robotic Radiosurgery System
CyberKnife VSI Robotic Radiosurgery System

CyberKnife VSI Robotic Radiosurgery System: A non-invasive alternative to surgery, CyberKnife VSI uses computer-controlled robotics to deliver multiple beams of high-energy radiation to tumors. Using an imaging system for guidance, the system can target a tumor with incredible precision — to less than a millimeter — from virtually any direction. This high level of accuracy spares surrounding healthy tissue from radiation exposure.

TrueBeam STx Radiosurgery Technology: Another non-invasive technology, TrueBeam synchronizes high-intensity beams of radiation with an imaging system, allowing doctors to "see" the tumor they are treating and adapt to movement caused by breathing. Its rapid delivery speed means most treatments take just minutes in a day. TrueBeam also enables doctors to customize treatments to specific cancers.

Multi-Source HDR Brachytherapy: An advanced cancer treatment that works from the inside out, HDR (high dose rate) brachytherapy involves precise placement of radiation seeds or sources into, or next to, a tumor. The therapy is quick and effective. It limits radiation exposure to surrounding healthy tissues.
