OHC is the leader in the use of CyberKnife for prostate cancer. CyberKnife is a nonsurgical, painless technology that can reduce or eliminate certain lesions and tumors, many previously considered inoperable.
With pinpoint, laser-like accuracy, CyberKnife delivers highly pinpointed beams of radiation to control or destroy the tumor. The robotic arm of the device is rotated depending on the location of the tumor, and can target even the most difficult locations with pinpoint accuracy. Image-guided cameras locate the tumor’s position and remain locked on the target throughout the procedure, which allows CyberKnife to correct for target organ movement during treatment. In other words, the CyberKnife system will work even if the patient slightly moves during the procedure.
