The CyberKnife treats spinal tumors aggressively with high-dose radiation that doesn't require a rigid metal frame attached to the patient's skeleton like other radiosurgical systems. This is made possible by an advanced imaging system that tracks the tumor location during treatment procedures. Most spinal tumors are metastases -- tumors that have spread from cancer in another part of the patient's body, usually breast, prostate or lung cancer. Austin CyberKnife treats several different types of malignant and benign tumors in the brain, spine, lung, liver, pancreas, prostate, kidney and eye. The center offers the only CyberKnife technology in the greater Austin area. Contact Austin CyberKnife at (512) 324-8060 or visit www.austincyberknife.com for more information.
