Depending on your diagnosis and the level of your tumor’s complexity, treatment involves one to five outpatient sessions, each lasting about 30-60 minutes.
On the day of your CyberKnife treatment sessions, please wear comfortable clothing and refrain from wearing jewelry. To make the session as comfortable as possible we offer a wide variety of music choices.
Once you’re positioned for treatment, you will be asked to lie still. The radiation therapist exits the treatment room and your session begins. The CyberKnife’s robotic arm will position itself around your body, delivering radiation directly to your tumor with pinpoint precision. We’ll observe you throughout the treatment on closed-circuit television, and you can pause the session at any time by signaling or speaking to the treatment team.
Once your treatment session is complete, you may resume your normal activities.
