CyberKnife Treatment for Prostate Cancer
Remarkable Prostate Cancer Treatment from the Region's Most Experienced Team
Today, increased education about the signs and symptoms of prostate cancer, along with the advanced diagnostic options, can help many men detect the disease at an early stage. The earlier the diagnosis, the better the prognosis.
One in every six men will develop prostate cancer during his lifetime. And, in addition to the normal fears that come with a cancer diagnosis, many men diagnosed with prostate cancer fear they will become incontinent or suffer from erectile dysfunction as a result of their treatment.
Unlike some of the traditional treatment options, CyberKnife treatment offers an extremely low risk of erectile dysfunction or incontinence, provided neither of these conditions existed prior to CyberKnife treatment.
Why? The CyberKnife system's sub-millimeter accuracy allows a high dose of radiation to treat the prostate gland while sparing the surrounding rectum and bladder because only a fraction of the beams will pass through any point in these normal structures.
