  • 5. CyberKnife + Prostate Cancer Prior to stereotactic body radiosurgery treatment with CyberKnife, small tissue markers known as fiducials are implanted in the prostate to help the CyberKnife pinpoint the tumor location throughout each treatment, so that the radiation beams can be locked on the tumor. About a week later, patients are fitted with a custom body mold of soft material that they lie on during treatments. The fitting process is painless. The treatment process includes: I.  Consultation appointment II.  Pretreatment procedures III.  CyberKnife treatment IV.  Follow-up 645 North Arlington Avenue, Suite 120, Reno, NV 89503 775-348-9900 RenoCyberKnife.com
