New  Jersey  CyberKnife  at  the  J.  Phillip  Ci6a  Regional  Cancer  Center  is  a  service  of  Community  Medical  Center.  99  Route  37  West  Toms  River,  NJ  08755                                                                            (732)  557-­‐3120                                                                            www.newjerseyck.com
  • 2. What is CyberKnife?The  world’s  only  roboDc  radiosurgery  system,  CyberKnife  treats  paDents  with  a  procedure  called  stereotac(c  radiosurgery.  StereotacDc  radiosurgery  is  a  noninvasive  method  of  treaDng  tumors  with  high-­‐dose  radiaDon  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  radiaDon  beam  -­‐  aRached  to  a  highly  maneuverable  roboDc  arm.      •  The  machine’s  roboDc  arm  moves  around  you,  aiming   and  firing  targeted  radiaDon  beams  from  numerous   angles.  •  The  imaging  and  tracking  system  conDnually  updates  the   tumor  locaDon  throughout  the  treatment  procedure,   compensaDng  for  paDent  movements  like  breathing.  •  Treatment  sessions  typically  last  30-­‐90  minutes.   99  Route  37  West  Toms  River,  NJ  08755                                                                            (732)  557-­‐3120                                                                            www.newjerseyck.com

  • 8. The US Radiosurgery NetworkIn  partnership  with  Community  Medical  Center,  New  Jersey  CyberKnife  at  the  J.  Phillip  CiRa  Regional  Cancer  Center  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  faciliDes  is  acDvely  engaged  in  research,  with  physicians  regularly  presenDng  papers  and  authoring  arDcles  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  funcDonal  disorders  such  as  trigeminal  neuralgia,  have  become  key  treatment  areas  throughout  the  network  of  centers.     99  Route  37  West  Toms  River,  NJ  08755                                                                            (732)  557-­‐3120                                                                            www.newjerseyck.com
