September is Prostate Cancer Awareness Month
MIAMI and PALM BEACH, Fla., Sept. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- September is Prostate Cancer Awareness Month, and the CyberKnife Centers of Miami and Palm Beach announce a revolutionary new way to treat prostate cancer without surgery and long treatment courses of radiation. Prostate cancer is the most common form of cancer affecting men in the US.
Morse CyberKnife CEO, James G. Schwade, M.D., says, "for many cases that are diagnosed early on, CyberKnife radiosurgery may be highly effective without invasive, debilitating surgery or long courses of radiation."
CyberKnife is image guided robotic radiosurgery that precisely targets
a lesion or tumor and delivers an intense dose of radiation to a very small
area killing the cancer cells within.
The CyberKnife treats prostate cancer in the following manner:
-- Outpatient status
-- Less pain and side effect than most alternatives
-- Complete treatment in 3-5 visits, each usually no longer than 1.5 hrs
-- Minimum radiation to surrounding normal areas
It is the mission of the Morse CyberKnife Centers to make the technology an option available to all cancer patients who might benefit. For more information please visit http://www.morsecyberknife.com or call 1-800-279-2900.
