CyberKnife Treatment for Medically Inoperable Lung Cancer

CyberKnife®, a highly developed technology designed to treat tumors, gives new options for those with medically inoperable lung cancer.

Phoenix, Arizona (Vocus) September 9, 2009 -- Today, ( highlights information about CyberKnife®, a new technology offering treatment options for medically inoperable lung cancer.

Medically inoperable cancer can be both frightening and frustrating to treat, primarily because the option of having it removed surgically is unavailable. Pre-existing conditions such as lung disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, or heart disease, impede treatment because of the high risk of complications or even death during surgery.

Left with no other alternative, patients have traditionally turned to treatments that are painful, invasive and destructive, such as chemotherapy, radiofrequency ablation and cryotherapy. These procedures attack the cancer broadly, damaging both cancerous and healthy tissue.

Fortunately, there’s a better option today – one that allows patients a much-improved chance to avoid this unpleasant outcome: The CyberKnife Robotic Radiosurgery System®. This new technology is designed to treat tumors, including inoperable lung cancer, with pinpoint accuracy. This technology exclusively targets the tumor with a precise dose of radiation so the surrounding healthy tissue is spared.

Dr. Jamie Cesaretti, an oncologist who uses the CyberKnife system, commented, "CyberKnife represents a revolution in the care of complex tumors. By combining a robotic arm and a very modern radiation accelerator, it is able to aim at a moving tumor anywhere in the body while avoiding nearby unaffected areas. The device, in experienced hands, is very useful for tumors in the brain, lung, spine, liver, and abdomen. Also, by using many different angles of attack for any given tumor, the CyberKnife is able to deliver extremely effective radio surgical treatments and radiation doses, which are not possible with other technologies." helps to disseminate information regarding this advanced technology through its growing website. Thousands are logging on to not only learn of the latest advancements in the medical field such as the CyberKnife technology, but to also find a physician or surgeon who is right for them.
