The London CyberKnife Centre at The Harley Street Clinic is the first in the UK to offer this treatment. CyberKnife requires no anaesthesia and patients can usually be treated and go home on the same day.
Worldwide, over 100,000 patients have been helped by this revolutionary, safe, non-surgical procedure that delivers highly focused radiation therapy precisely to where it is needed. For a list of conditions that might be suitable for treatment with CyberKnife click here.
The CyberKnife is the world’s first and only radiosurgery system that uses advanced robotics to treat tumours anywhere in the body. Patients are typically treated in one to five sessions targeting individual tumours with greater precision, minimising significant dose to surrounding normal tissues that would be vulnerable to damage from high radiation doses.
