Words from CyberKnife Patients

More and more patients are seeking CyberKnife treatment across the country and sharing their experiences with the cancer care community.

Theresa T., a lung cancer patient, was treated at another center and discovered CyberKnife after looking for a noninvasive option to treat the spread of her disease. After previously undergoing surgery, she hoped to avoid another long-term recovery.

“I was nervous at first because I hadn’t heard of the procedure but I did a lot of research and heard good things about it. Once treatment began I felt very relaxed and safe,” she said.

During treatment, Theresa reported no pain or discomfort and returned to her normal routine following each session. She was treated in five sessions.

“CyberKnife gave me so much hope and it’s why I’m here today,” she said. “I had no side effects and in fact I even went shopping afterward!”
