The cyberknife procedure is a radiation therapy device used for delivering high-frequency radiation to treat tumors.
It can be used for benign tumors as well as malignant tumors and other malformations.
It is non-invasive and can be used in a lot of cancers like the lung, spine, liver, pancreas, head and neck, and prostate.
The cyberknife radiosurgery is the only radiation delivery method that involves LINAC (linear accelerator) which is directly placed on a robotic device to deliver the high energy X-rays and photons to the target.
It uses image guidance for setting the target and delivers radiation precisely to the area.
It minimizes the dose for surrounding tissues and causes less damage.Cyberknife Treatment cost in Malaysia is between USD 12600 to USD 15400. The total cost of the treatment depends on the diagnosis and facilities opted by the patient.

Generally, each CyberKnife treatment lasts between 30 to 90 minutes. The number of treatments varies depending on the tumor size, location, and shape.
No anesthesia is required for the treatment because these sessions are completed on an outpatient basis.
CyberKnife has local control and effectiveness that is equivalent to surgery. However, due to its non-invasive nature, the risk of side effects is significantly lower with CyberKnife.
The Cyberknife always hits exactly the tumor - the healthy tissue is optimally protected. A precision robot accurately places the high dose of radiosurgical drugs from many directions in the tumor.
CyberKnife uses an approach called stereotactic body radiation therapy, delivering precise doses of radiation with extreme accuracy and accounting for a tumor or patient movement in real-time.
Treatment with the CyberKnife System is a non-surgical and outpatient procedure that does not require hospitalization.
The majority of patients can continue normal activity during and immediately following treatment. The ones who have traditional prostate cancer surgery should limit normal activity for three to five weeks.
Almost all patients can drive after their CyberKnife treatment. However, with some types of cancer, driving may not be recommended due to strong pain medication or fatigue.
