Cyberknife robotic radiosurgery is a non-invasive alternative to conventional cancer surgery. Doctors use the procedure to treat malignant and benign tumors almost anywhere in the body. Medical tourism offers cyberknife procedures to treat cancerous tumors in the prostate, pancreas, liver, kidney, lung, spine and brain. The treatment delivers targeted, high-dose radiation with intense accuracy and precision.
Cyberknife is used for patients who have surgically complex or inoperable tumors. Many travelers seek the procedure as a non-invasive cancer treatment option. The relatively new procedure has treated more than 100,000 patients worldwide, and nearly 250 systems are installed across the globe. In medical tourism, quality cyberknife treatments are available in Turkey, India and Korea. As the system becomes available in more international hospitals, other countries will offer this promising cancer treatment.
