Radiosurgery can often be used very well for treating tumors on organs such as the kidney, as it is effective and safe. Cyberknife radiosurgery has been used for many years and is well proven for the treatment of kidney tumors, especially at the center of Munich. In close cooperation with the urological experts from the University Hospital of the LMU in Großhadern, cyberknife therapy is carried out on kidney tumors.
The Cyberknife system can treat tumors that move with respiration on organs such as the kidneys without fixation or anesthesia. Its unique technical capabilities compensates for respiratory movements and is designed to precisely hit the tumor with an accuracy of about one millimeter. The sensitive tissue in the kidney is optimally protected.
If patients who are at increased risk of surgery meet the criteria for radiosurgery, they can be treated very well with Cyberknife. For patients, usually only one single treatment session is necessary to effectively eliminate a tumor in the kidney. Several international publication where our group was included has already been published internationally and proofes the efficacy of this treatment method (see publications).
