The Cyberknife system is a very gentle and precise therapy throughout the body, including spinal metastases. Cyberknife radiosurgery is safe and effective in treating spinal cord lesions. It works with an accuracy of less than one millimeter, which is particularly important in the treatment of tumors along the spine with their delicate structures.
With the aid of the integrated image guidance system and the technical flexibility provided by the robot control, the Cyberknife system can also be used non-invasively on the spinal column without fixation and is painless. If patients who are at increased risk of surgery meet the indication criteria, they can often be treated very well with Cyberknife. Patients receive the dose in most cases in a single treatment session.
Due to the particularly safe and precise radiosurgical treatment, radiosurgical high-dose treatment can be carried out even after a previous conventional irradiation.
