CyberKnife Cancer Treatment in the East Bay

If you or a family member have received a cancer diagnosis, you are now wondering what treatments are available, which are the most effective, the least invasive, and provide the greatest hope for recovery. For fast-growing cancers like lung cancer, radiation therapy can be an effective option, especially when it can be delivered at a high enough dose, with extreme precision – which is where CyberKnife comes in. Epic Care CyberKnife provides unparalleled cancer treatment in Walnut Creek to patients across the East Bay, San Francisco, and surrounding areas.

What is CyberKnife

CyberKnife was born when one physician’s research in radiation oncology collided with brand new state-of-the-art technology, producing never-before-seen results for cancer patients. CyberKnife is radiation therapy, delivered in a highly concentrated beam that targets cancer cells through computerized tumor-tracking technology and real-time imaging, and it doesn’t require any surgery.
CyberKnife treats a variety of cancers. It usually takes place in five treatments, over one week, causes very few side effects, and patients do not need to stay overnight.

CyberKnife and Lung Cancer

There are 2 basic types of lung cancer: Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC) and Small Cell Lung Cancer (SCLC). Depending on their specific type within these two categories, they can form in many different parts of the lung, in different types of tissue, and almost all of them spread very quickly.

  • Because of the complexity of the lung, surgery may be very easy or very invasive, which is what makes CyberKnife’s surgery-free approach so appealing.
  • Lung cancer is fast-growing cancer that responds better to radiation and chemotherapy treatments, so the fact that the CyberKnife radiation delivery system works very well in conjunction with other treatments, provides the flexibility and customization lung cancer patients need.
  • Because cancer can begin in various parts of the lung and spread rapidly to others, an extremely precise form of treatment is required to battle malignant cells in the intricate tissues of the lung. The CyberKnife has a versatile robotic arm that allows it to deliver powerful radiation from virtually any angle, while its advanced imaging system allows it to easily avoid surrounding tissues.
