About 60% of all prostate cancer cases are diagnosed in men 65 years of age and older; 97% occur in men 50 and older. •  Treatment Options: Varies depending on age, stage and grade of cancer. Possible treatments include surgery, stereotactic radiosurgery, external beam radiation or brachytherapy (radioactive seed implants.) 495 Cooper Road, Ste. 125, Westerville OH 43081 614-898-8300 ColumbusCK.com
  5. 5. CyberKnife® Overview CyberKnife stereotactic radiosurgery is a treatment option for cancerous and noncancerous lesions. This non-invasive treatment delivers high-dose radiation to tumors from different angles adjusting for tumor and patient movement (breathing) during treatment. Traditional radiation treatments are unable to deliver high dose radiation without exposing a large margin of surrounding tissue to the radiation. As a result, treatment often occurs over many sessions (up to 45 treatment days) using low doses of radiation. Conversely, CyberKnife uses its advanced tracking system to target tumors from multiple angles and deliver high doses of radiation over a shorter course of time, specifically no more than five treatment sessions. Utilizing this approach, healthy tissues are minimally exposed to the radiation resulting in few to no side effects and return to normal activities right after treatment. 495 Cooper Road, Ste. 125, Westerville OH 43081 614-898-8300 ColumbusCK.com
