New Study Shows CyberKnife Effective for Localized Prostate Cancer

A recent prostate cancer study examined the outcomes of CyberKnife® treatment for low and immediate risk patients with early stage prostate cancer. Researchers examined the cases of 32 patients over a two-year period. After receiving CyberKnife treatment, patients experienced lower toxicity levels and fewer instances of recurrence for years following treatment.

Columbus CyberKnife treats prostate cancer patients with stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) using CyberKnife technology. For early stage prostate cancer patients, this treatment method offers unique benefits that allow patients to receive treatment with minimal disruption to their daily activities.

The CyberKnife pinpoints tumors with sub-millimeter accuracy and minimizes radiation exposure to surrounding healthy tissue. CyberKnife’s advanced range of motion allows physicians to treat difficult-to-reach areas in the body. Most patients experience few to no side effects and return to their normal activities immediately following each session.
