Comprehensive Cancer Centers are the only doctors in Southern Nevada who offer the service to carry out modern non-invasive surgeries with the revolutionary CyberKnife® radiosurgery.
What is CyberKnife®?
CyberKnife® is a painless, non-invasive cancer surgery alternative that uses computer-operated robotics and image guidance technology to treat hard-to-reach tumors. It tracks and destroys tumors in the body or brain while accounting for the patient’s breathing.
- Painless, non-surgical cancer treatment
- Pin-point surgical accuracy
- 1-5 short treatments
- Minimizes risk of side effects
- More effective than common radiation therapy for many disease sites
- Offers new hope to patients with inoperable or previously radiated tumors
Types of cancer the technology treats
- Head and Neck
- Lung and Chest
- Prostate and Pelvic
This technology can also re-treat patients who were previously treated with radiation. According to the International RadioSurgery Association (IRSA), body radiosurgery treatments are rare without this advanced technology.
Las Vegas CyberKnife® at Summerlin was made possible through a partnership between Comprehensive Cancer Centers’s radiation oncologists, Select HealthCare Solutions and Summerlin Hospital. The treatment machine is located at the Comprehensive’s radiation oncology office located on the campus of Summerlin Hospital Medical Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.
