Transcript of "Philadelphia CyberKnife"

  1. 1. Philadelphia  CyberKnife  is  a  service  of  Delaware  County  Memorial  Hospital,  a  member  of  the  Crozer-­‐Keystone  Health  System.  2010  West  Chester  Pike  Suite  115  Havertown,  PA  19083                                                (610)  446-­‐6850                                  www.phillycyberknife.com
  2. 2. What is CyberKnife?The  world’s  only  roboHc  radiosurgery  system,  CyberKnife  treats  paHents  with  a  procedure  called  stereotac(c  radiosurgery.  StereotacHc  radiosurgery  is  a  noninvasive  method  of  treaHng  tumors  with  high-­‐dose  radiaHon  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  radiaHon  beam  -­‐  aRached  to  a  highly  maneuverable  roboHc  arm.      •  The  machine’s  roboHc  arm  moves  around  you,  aiming  and   firing  targeted  radiaHon  beams  from  numerous  angles.  •  The  imaging  and  tracking  system  conHnually  updates  the   tumor  locaHon  throughout  the  treatment  procedure,   compensaHng  for  paHent  movements  like  breathing.  •  Treatment  sessions  typically  last  30  -­‐  60  minutes.   2010  West  Chester  Pike  Suite  115  Havertown,  PA  19083                                                (610)  446-­‐6850                                  www.phillycyberknife.com

  8. 8. The US Radiosurgery NetworkIn  partnership  with  Delaware  County  Memorial  Hospital,  Philadelphia  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  faciliHes  is  acHvely  engaged  in  research,  with  physicians  regularly  presenHng  papers  and  authoring  arHcles  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  funcHonal  disorders  such  as  trigeminal  neuralgia,  have  become  key  treatment  areas  throughout  the  network  of  centers.     2010  West  Chester  Pike  Suite  115  Havertown,  PA  19083                                                (610)  446-­‐6850                                  www.phillycyberknife.com
