The range, accuracy and precision of the CyberKnife system can help target areas that may not be suitable for treatments with traditional surgery, radiation therapy, or older radiosurgery systems like the gamma knife.
Miami, FL (PRWEB) July 17, 2007
MORSE LLC - which operates The CyberKnife Centers of Miami and Palm Beach Gardens have taken measures to make pertinent life-saving information, more accessible for cancer patients, their families, or other individuals who wish to become knowledgeable about radiosurgery by launching a new website, http://www.morsecyberknife.com Specifically for individuals who suffer from conditions that require radiation treatment or therapy, the website features sections for doctors and patients as well as an interactive feature to help pinpoint where the user's specific problem may be in their individual body. Contact information for highly experienced and trained staff, physicians and surgeons in the South Florida region is also available.
CyberKnife is a highly advanced radiation tool that facilitates the administration of radiation to parts of the body that are deemed inoperable with more conventional treatment methods. These areas include, but are not limited to, parts of the brain, internal organs, and spinal cord. Using this revolutionary method, tumors and lesions can be completely eliminated in a nonsurgical procedure with three to five treatments and virtually no side effects.
With the CyberKnife:
- No incisions are made
- No anesthesia is required
- There is no blood or pain
- There is no recovery time needed after the procedure.
"We treat brain, spine, lung, pancreas, liver, prostate, head and neck, and other conditions throughout the body where radiation treatment is indicated. Many of our patients are treated with the CyberKnife for conditions that have been deemed inoperable, or for areas that have previously received the maximum level of radiation," says Executive Director James G. Schwade, MD, FACR, FACRO. "The range, accuracy and precision of the CyberKnife system can help target areas that may not be suitable for treatments with traditional surgery, radiation therapy, or older radiosurgery systems like the gamma knife."
The procedure is performed with a team of experienced physicians and can cost 20% to 45% less than traditional radiosurgery treatments. Conditions treated with the CyberKnife include various cancers, tumors, functional disorders, and lesions throughout various parts of the body. Over 10,000 patients worldwide have been treated using this system, and many operations have proven successful for patients previously told that their tumors were inoperable with traditional forms of radiation therapy.
