  • 1. Illinois  CyberKnife  is  a  department  of  Advocate  Lutheran  General  Hospital.  1700 Luther Lane Suite 1110 Park Ridge, Illinois 60068 (847) 723-0100 www.illinoisck.com
  • 2. What is CyberKnife?The  world’s  only  robo/c  radiosurgery  system,  CyberKnife  treats  pa/ents  with  a  procedure  called  stereotac(c  radiosurgery.  Stereotac/c  radiosurgery  is  a  noninvasive  method  of  trea/ng  tumors  with  high-­‐dose  radia/on  precisely  aimed  from  different  angles.    How  does  CyberKnife  work?  CyberKnife  does  not  require  surgery  and  there  is  no  cu7ng  or  anesthesia  required.  Comprised  of  a  compact  linear  accelerator  -­‐  a  machine  that  generates  a  radia/on  beam  -­‐  aDached  to  a  highly  maneuverable  robo/c  arm.      •  The  machine’s  robo/c  arm  moves  around  you,  aiming   and  firing  targeted  radia/on  beams  from  numerous   angles.  •  The  imaging  and  tracking  system  con/nually  updates  the   tumor  loca/on  throughout  the  treatment  procedure,   compensa/ng  for  pa/ent  movements  like  breathing.  •  Treatment  sessions  typically  last  30  -­‐  90  minutes.   1700 Luther Lane Suite 1110 Park Ridge, Illinois 60068 (847) 723-0100 www.illinoisck.com

  • 8. The US Radiosurgery NetworkIn  partnership  with  Advocate  Lutheran  General  Hospital,  Illinois  CyberKnife  is  a  US  Radiosurgery  facility.    Based  in  Nashville,  Tennessee,  US  Radiosurgery  is  a  division  of  Alliance  Oncology  and  partners  with  hospitals  and  physician  groups  around  the  U.S.  to  develop  and  operate  full-­‐body  radiosurgical  centers.      Collec(vely,  the  US  Radiosurgery  network  of  centers  has  treated  thousands  of  pa(ents  since  the  opening  of  the  company’s  first  center  in  2003.  The  group  of  facili/es  is  ac/vely  engaged  in  research,  with  physicians  regularly  presen/ng  papers  and  authoring  ar/cles  related  to  the  efficacy  of  CyberKnife  treatment  for  various  types  of  tumors  and  lesions.  Tumors  of  the  lung,  brain  and  prostate,  as  well  as  certain  func/onal  disorders  such  as  trigeminal  neuralgia,  have  become  key  treatment  areas  throughout  the  network  of  centers.     1700 Luther Lane Suite 1110 Park Ridge, Illinois 60068 (847) 723-0100 www.illinoisck.com
