CyberKnife non-invasive cancer treatment 

For the hardest-to-treat tumors, CyberKnife gives you options.

What is CyberKnife?

CyberKnife® robotic radiosurgery is a non-invasive treatment for hard-to-reach or inoperable tumors. This robotic therapy targets complex tumors — including cancerous and non-cancerous tumors — by delivering doses of targeted radiation safely, anywhere in the body. And it’s not a knife at all.

No incisions involved. So you have quicker treatments, less pain and faster recovery.

The most advanced technology in the U.S. — and it’s only at Geisinger

We’ve brought the latest CyberKnife technology to northeast Pennsylvania to help you get better, faster. The CyberKnife S7 is the first technology of its kind in the country and works up to 95% faster than previous models, building treatment plans in a few minutes (compared to a few hours). This means we can start treating your cancer sooner — so you can return to your everyday life.

The S7’s advanced technology calculates multiple treatment options based on your body so that all treatment possibilities can be explored. This allows us to build an even more personalized treatment plan.

This technology is the first of its kind in the U.S., and it’s available at the Frank M. and Dorothea Henry Cancer Center at Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center.

What conditions does CyberKnife treat?

Cancer isn’t one-size-fits-all — that’s why we’ll work with you to find the treatment that’s best for you. 

For complex cancers or tumors that are hard to reach, surgery may not always be an option. CyberKnife is a non-surgical treatment that targets complex tumors anywhere in the body, including:

CyberKnife is also used to treat non-cancerous tumors.

Before beginning CyberKnife treatment, you’ll have imaging tests to pinpoint the exact size and location of your tumor. This helps us create a treatment plan that includes a specific dose of radiation based on the type of tumor you have.
