Cyberknife Radiosurgery Treatment for Lung Cancer Patients

Cyberknife's Radiosurgery System offers a non-invasive alternative to surgery and traditional radiation therapy for people that have been diagnosed with lung cancer.  This is a fairly new, but approved alternative to other lung cancer treatments such as Invasive Surgery, Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) and Image Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT).

The Cyberknife has the unique ability to deliver a precise dose of radiation to lung cancer as well as other tumors and cancers throughout the body.  Cyberknife of Long Island has the latest technology and is a leader in delivering stereotactic radiosurgery for lung cancer.

Why Choose Cyberknife Radiosurgery for Lung Cancer?

  • Painless.
  • Non Invasive.
  • No Anesthesia.
  • Outpatient Procedure which is completed in only five treatments.

The Cyberknife Treats the Lung Tumor, Sparing Healthy Tissue

The challenge that doctors face with tumors in the lung is that those tumors move as the patient breathes. Radiosurgery devices, such as the CyberKnife Robotic Radiosurgery System at Cyberknife of Long Island, offer patients an alternative option for the treatment of lung cancer. Unlike traditional radiation therapy, the CyberKnife System precisely identifies the tumor location as the patient breathes normally during treatment and can be used, in some cases, to treat lung tumors non-invasively.

Cyberknife of Long Island is able to offer this precision for lung cancer because we use:

  • 3D imaging, such as CT Scan, MRI, or PET Scans that allow the physicians locate the tumor's shape and size and avoid healthy tissue.

 Lung Cancer Beams

  • Interactive, live image guidance that allows for pretreatment adjustments and monitors tumor movement that occurs with normal breathing. 

Cyberknife Lung Cancer Treatment

  • Advanced software suite that develops individualized treatment plans.
  • The ability to deliver radiation from any angle.

What About Side Effects From Lung Cancer Treatment with Cyberknife?

The total dose of radiation to the patient is significantly less when treated with Cyberknife Radiosurgery when compared to traditional radiation therapy.  This treatment results in minimal or no side effects.  The other benefit to treatment with the Cyberknife is that there is no recovery time.  Although some patients who complete Cyberknife Radiosurgery for lung cancer may experience some minor temporary side effects, in contrast to surgical removal of the lung tumor.  The precision of the Cyberknife allows for a higher dose of radiation per treatment, which reduces the total number of treatments by about 2 months.

Patient Testimonials

“After a long and painful recovery from the surgery that removed my first lung tumor, I elected to have the second tumor removed non invasively with the Cyberknife System.  The Cyberknife treatment was very easy.  I relaxed and slept during the treatment.  I was able to return to work immediately.  There were no side effects.  I am grateful my doctor recommended me for the Cyberknife radiosurgery.”
