"I like to think of CyberKnife as 'virtual surgery.' Despite its name, there are no cuts or incisions. The CyberKnife is a specialized radiation machine which uses intense doses of radiation, delivered with surgical precision, to obliterate cancers and tumors anywhere in the body"-- Richard Shumway, M.D., Medical Director of the Connecticut CyberKnife Center at Saint Francis Hospital and Medical Center.

"Untreatable" and "inoperable" tumors are terms of the past at the Connecticut CyberKnife Center at Saint Francis Hospital and Medical Center. CyberKnife uses precisely targeted radiation to destroy cancers and non-cancerous lesions anywhere in the body, including the prostate, lung, brain, spine, liver, pancreas and kidney. Despite its name, the CyberKnife treatment involves no surgery. Instead, CyberKnife is the world's most accurate, real-time, full-body radiosurgery system, using x-ray-guided robotics to deliver focused radiation which painlessly eradicates tumors and lesions with pinpoint precision.
Saint Francis Hospital and Medical Center was the first to offer the CyberKnife® stereotactic radiosurgery system in southern New England. With more than 1,500 procedures performed since 2006, our team is one of the most experienced in the country.
