CyberKnife

The CyberKnife was invented at Stanford and is considered a major advance in the radiological treatment of cancer.

With more experience than anyone in the world using the CyberKnife to deliver stereotatic radiosurgery, the Stanford CyberKnife Treatment Center is able to provide cutting-edge radiotherapy treatment for a wider variety of cancers than any other center.

CyberKnife stereotactic radiosurgery uses computer technology to allow doctors to deliver radiation with unprecedented precision, and without the uncomfortable screws or frames that were previously used to immobilize patients during treatment.
