    • Columbus  CybeKnife  is  a  service  of  Mount  Carmel  St.  Anns  Hospital.  495 Cooper Road Suite 125 Westerville, OH 43081 (614) 898-8300 www.columbusck.com
    • 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.   495 Cooper Road Suite 125 Westerville, OH 43081 (614) 898-8300 www.columbusck.com
