CyberKnife cancer cure at Apollo hospitals


Apollo Speciality Cancer Hospital in Chennai has installed latest state-of-the-art CyberKnife cancer cure equipment that could provide acute precision radiation treatment at 360 degree angle for patients with cancer.Talking to reporters, A.N. Vaidhyswaran, Senior Consultant Radiation Oncology at Apollo Speciality Cancer Hospital, said that it is an innovation in the treatment of cancer.

The CyberKnife brings an unparalleled approach to treating inoperable tumours. He said that the advanced technology behind CyberKnife uses real time guidance technology and computer controlled robotics to deliver an extremely precise dose of radiation to targets, avoiding the surrounding of healthy tissue and adjusting for patient and tumour movement during treatment.

The sophisticated treatment could be used as an alternative to open surgery occasionally.The treatment could even convert a technically inoperable tumour to operable one and does not cause pain and therefore does not require anaesthesia.

Vast majority of CyberKnife treatments are out-patient procedures allowing patients to continue with their regular activities.Many of the available high precision radiation techniques require application of some kind of frame around patient’s body.
