The London CyberKnife Centre at The Harley Street Clinic was the first in the UK to offer this treatment. CyberKnife treatment requires no anaesthesia, there is no recovery time and patients can usually be treated and go home on the same day.
Worldwide, some 35,000 patients have already been helped by this revolutionary, safe, non-surgical procedure that delivers highly focussed radiation therapy precisely to where it is needed, minimising significant dose to surrounding normal tissues that would be vulnerable to damage from high radiation doses.
The CyberKnife System is the world’s first and only radiosurgery system that uses advanced robotics to treat tumors anywhere in the body. Patients are typically treated in one to five sessions and treatment is able to target individual tumours with greater precision and less damage to surrounding healthy tissue than any other form of radiotherapy.
Combining the latest technology…
The CyberKnife Centre London at The Harley Street Clinic is the first of its kind in the UK. Investment in the latest CyberKnife technology from the USA means we are now able to treat people who have been diagnosed with tumours and other medical conditions previously considered inoperable.
The CyberKnife offers patients advantages over alternative treatments such as microsurgery or radio-surgical techniques, including fewer post-treatment complications and faster recovery times.
