Ground-breaking Cancer Treatment: Can the Cyberknife Help You?

Hosted by Tamara A. LaCouture, MD

The CyberKnife is the world’s first and only radiosurgery system designed to pinpoint and destroy tumors in the body. In many cases, the treatment offers new hope to patients who were considered untreatable or inoperable, who may be looking for an alternative to surgery, or who have been previously exposed to the maximum allowable dose of radiation but still require further treatment. Cooper University Hospital is the only hospital in the Delaware Valley to have both a cyberknife and gamma knife to treat tumors.
