Cyberknife of Long Island Destroys Prostate Cancer Non-Invasively Using Radiosurgery
Date:5/27/2010

nizes prostate cancer treatment," said Richard Byrnes, MD, the center’s Medical Director. "The advanced technology behind CyberKnife uses real time image guidance technology and computer controlled robotics to deliver an extremely precise dose of radiation to the prostate, avoiding the surrounding healthy tissue and adjusting for patient and tumor movement during treatment."

"The procedure requires no anesthesia, as the treatment is painless and non-invasive," said Heather Zinkin, a Radiation Oncologist at Cyberknife of Long Island. “The machine's robotic arm works continually with image guided technology and has the ability to move in three dimensions according to the treatment plan.”

The prostate cancer treatment has success rates equivalent to surgery and conventional radiation therapy, and generally lasts between 30 to 60 minutes.

This treatment can also successfully treat brain and spine tumors, lung cancers and other cancers that are in areas that move involuntarily - like in the respiratory or digestive system.

"These treatments are out-patient procedures, ranging from five to as little as one visit, allowing patients to continue their normal activities," Dr. Zinkin said.

There are about 180 Cyberknife systems around the world; the one at Cyberknife of Long Island is among the most advanced.

Since 1988, North Shore Radiation Therapy has provided premier radiation therapy services in New York. The center offers Cyberknife Radiosurgery, 3-D Conformal Radiation Therapy, IMRT (Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy), IGRT (Image Guided Radiation Therapy), Rapid Arc, Partial Breast, Skin and Gynecolo
