CyberKnife Procedures

Cyberknife® treatment, available through a partnership between GAMC and Pasadena CyberKnife, treats tumors using specifically targeted beams of radiation, destroying the tumor while sparing the surrounding healthy tissue. It provides a pain-free, non-surgical option for patients who have inoperable or surgically complex tumors, or who may be looking for an alternative to open surgery.
