How Much Does Cyberknife Treatment Cost?

 

Cyberknife surgery is a form of radiation therapy used for the treatment of benign tumors, malignant tumors, and some other medical conditions. It consists of a linear accelerator placed on a robotic arm. The CyberKnife indicates the position of target tumor relative to the radiographic features such as the skull, bony landmarks, etc.

 

How is it different from Other Stereotactic Radiosurgery?

 

Unlike stereotactic radiosurgery, CyberKnife is able to locate and track the position of the tumor without any use of a bulky head frame or body frame. The system facilitates the patient to respirate and move during the treatment, which ensures accurate target for delivery of radiation beams.

 

What conditions are treated by CyberKnife?

 

The CyberKnife treatment has received FDA clearance for the treatment of tumors in any part of the body. It can be used both for benign and malignant conditions, from stage I to stage IV. A few examples of such conditions which can be treatment by CyberKnife are listed below:

  • Lung cancer

  • Pancreatic cancer

  • Metastatic liver cancer

  • Cancer in the spine

  • Benign brain tumors

  • Malformation of blood vessels in the brain

  • Trigeminal neuralgia

  • Metastatic Orbital Tumors

Cost of CyberKnife is India

 

The approximate CyberKnife treatment cost in India revolves around 7000 USD. Within this range, you can get treatment in some of the best hospitals along with the accommodation and the cost of travel. There are modern pieces of equipment that work with the latest technology and highly skilled & experienced doctors at such a reasonable cost. The exact cost will depend upon several factors such as,

  • The city

  • The hospital

  • The expertise of the doctor

  • The complexity of the case

The cost in India is much lesser as compared to that in the US, which is at least 30,000 USD.


 

What are the benefits of CyberKnife surgery in India?

 

  • A non-surgical procedure that targets cancerous cells and prevents them from spreading further.

  • It gives faster results within 2-5 sessions because it is much more powerful than regular radiation therapy.

  • Cyberknife is a highly precise procedure and does not cause any harm to the surrounding normal cells.

  • Since there is less trauma involved, the recovery is also faster.

  • It has a flexible approach. Due to the robotic arms present, the surgeon can target the tumor present in any part of the body.

 

What is the success rate of Cyberknife?

 

According to various studies, there are 97 -100% chances of survival for patients who are at low risk. For the immediate risk patients, the survival rate is 88 - 96%. It is concluded that cyberknife surgery is about 50 % more effective than conventional radiation therapy used. Patients who are at high-risk for surgical excision or radiotherapy can go for less invasive cyberknife surgery. The treatment lasts for approximately 30 -90 minutes per session.
