CyberKnife Treatment Center

 

CyberKnife is an entirely new approach to radiosurgery, offering qualified patients with tumors new hope, and a painless, non-invasive alternative to open surgery.

The CyberKnife uses image-guided robotics to destroy tumors (cancerous and benign) and other lesions in the head, neck, spine and areas throughout the body that may be considered inoperable or untreatable with conventional surgery or other radiosurgery systems.  Tumors are targeted with beams of high-energy radiation so precise, they can match the shape of small complex tumors located in critical structures, while preserving normal tissue nearby.

CyberKnife Treatment Center

Baptist Health Lexington's CyberKnife Treatment Center is a multi-specialty center focused on bringing the best care and the highest technological advances for the treatment of  both cancerous and benign tumors, and various disease processes using CyberKnife Radiosurgery.  Baptist Health Lexington was the first hospital in the state of Kentucky to provide this innovative treatment technology. 

Once your physician has referred you for CyberKnife treatments, a team of dedicated professionals will work closely with you to determine the best course of action.  The team includes:

  • Radiation Oncologist
  • Surgeon
  • CyberKnife Coordinator 
  • Oncology Certified Nurses
  • Radiation Physicist
  • Dosimetrist

Our CyberKnife Treatment Center houses the CyberKnife equipment and additional resources to help you continue to maintain a healthy lifestyle once treatment has been completed.
