The CyberKnife Robotic Radiosurgery System is a non-invasive alternative to surgery for the treatment of both cancerous and non-cancerous tumors anywhere in the body, including the prostate, lung, brain, spine, liver, pancreas and kidney. The treatment – which delivers high doses of radiation to tumors with extreme accuracy – offers new hope to patients who have inoperable or surgically complex tumors, or who may be looking for a non-surgical option.
The CyberKnife Robotic Radiosurgery System is a non-invasive alternative to surgery for the treatment of both cancerous and non-cancerous tumors anywhere in the body, including the prostate, lung, brain, spine, liver, pancreas and kidney. The treatment – which delivers beams of high dose radiation to tumors with extreme accuracy – offers new hope to patients worldwide. Though its name may conjure images of scalpels and surgery, the CyberKnife treatment involves no cutting. In fact, the CyberKnife System is the world’s first and only robotic radiosurgery system designed to treat tumors throughout the body non-invasively. 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 surgery.
The da Vinci System has brought minimally invasive surgery to more than 3 million patients worldwide.Da Vinci technology – changing the experience of surgery for people around the world. Da Vinci Surgery is used for:
-Head & Neck Surgery
The da Vinci Surgical System enables surgeons to perform operations through a few small incisions and features several key features, including:
-Magnified vision system that gives surgeons a 3D HD view inside the patient’s body
-Ergonomically designed console where the surgeon sits while operating
-Patient-side cart where the patient is positioned during surgery
-Wristed instruments that bend and rotate far greater than the human hand
The da Vinci System is powered by robotic technology that allows the surgeon’s hand movements to be translated into smaller, precise movements of tiny instruments inside the patient’s body. One of the instruments is a laparoscope – a thin tube with a tiny camera and light at the end. The camera sends images to a video monitor in the operating room to guide doctors during surgery. The surgeon is 100% in control of the da Vinci System at all times.
The Gamma Knife is an advanced radiation treatment for adults and children with small to medium brain tumors, abnormal blood vessel formations called arteriovenous malformations, epilepsy, trigeminal neuralgia, a nerve condition that causes chronic pain, and other neurological conditions. Conditions for which the Gamma Knife is considered most effective are: intracranial tumors such as acoustic neuromas, pituitary adenomas, pinealomas, craniopharyngiomas, meningiomas, chordomas, chondrosarcomas, metastases and glial tumors. Vascular malformations including arteriovenous malformations. Functional disorders such as trigeminal neuralgia and obsessive-compulsive disorder.
Gamma Knife® surgery is unique in that no surgical incision is made to expose the inside of the brain, thereby reducing the risk of surgical complications and eliminating the side effects and dangers of general anesthesia. The "blades" of the Gamma Knife® are the beams of gamma radiation programmed to target the lesion at the point where they intersect. In a single treatment session, 201 beams of gamma radiation focus precisely on the lesion. Over time, most lesions slowly decrease in size and dissolve. The exposure is brief and only the tissue being treated receives a significant radiation dose, while the surrounding tissue remains unharmed. The same as neurosurgery, the Gamma Knife® allows noninvasive cerebral surgery to be performed in one session and with extreme precision, sparing tissues adjacent to the target. Based on preoperative radiological examinations, such as CT scans, MR scans and angiography, the unit provides highly accurate irradiation of deep-seated targets, using a multitude of collimated beams of ionizing radiation with scalpel-like precision.
Surgical treatment of the spine requires planning and precision crafted around each patient’s unique challenges and anatomy – a process streamlined by Mazor System. That’s why leading hospitals worldwide are utilizing Mazor to assist in a wide variety of spine procedures every day:
-Adult reconstructive surgery
Spine surgery can be a scary prospect for a lot of patients. Worries about accuracy, patient outcomes and recovery time are common. Thankfully, when it comes to spine surgery performed with the Mazor System, you can rest easy. Independent clinical research has shown that minimally-invasive surgery with Mazor Robotics technology provides the benefits listed below:
-Promotes Faster Recovery
-Reduced Post-operative Pain
-Lowered Complication Rates
