Stereotactic Radiosurgery

A pain-free, non-invasive alternative to surgery

Brookwood Baptist Health offers advanced radiation therapies using theCyberKnife® system to deliver powerful cancer treatments with pinpoint accuracy, precision and speed. Capable of targeting tumors anywhere in the body, such as the head, prostate, lung, spine, liver, pancreas, and kidney, stereotactic radiosurgery can reduce treatment down to one to five days, compared to the weeks it takes to complete a course of conventional radiation therapy.

These therapies provide our radiation oncologists and neurosurgeons a wide range of options to treat the most complicated tumors. Our physician team works closely with multi-disciplinary cancer specialists, along with patients and their families, to make the best possible care decisions and maximize patient comfort.

Non-invasive treatment options available:

  • Stereotactic Body Radiotherapy (SBRT) – delivers high-doses of radiation to smaller tumors in the body, reducing the number of treatments required
  • Stereotactic Radiosurgery (SRS) - delivers high-doses of radiation to smaller tumors in localized areas of the brain and spine with great precision
