“Into Tomorrow” With David Graveline Profiles How CyberKnife Image Guided Robotic Radiosurgery is Providing Hope for Some Cancer Patients
Wired PR News.com Press Release – Cancer is one disease diagnosis that commonly illicits a feeling of fear . A recent report featured on “Into Tomorrow” with David Graveline presents information about an effective non-invasive treatment for cancerous tumors that may be the life saving link cancer patients have been awaiting.
“Into Tomorrow” Health Specialist Marilyn Mitzel provides details in the report regarding how the technology is winning the battle of treating specific cancer and lesions, which in some cases provides a better quality of life and the end of pain.
The Cyberknife is described as a “silent smooth operator” that helps eradicate tumors and lesions: cancerous as well as those that aren’t malignant. The precisely targeted radiation beam has a cure rate between 88 and 97 percent. As stated by Dr. James G. Schwade, executive director of the CyberKnife Centers of Miami and Palm Beach, “what it allows us to do is treat tumors that we otherwise wouldn’t be able to treat over a period of time, and manage cancer like a chronic disease like diabetes or heart disease.”
As further reported, the treatment involves no incisions, blood, pain, or increased recovery time. Patients can listen to music while being administered the high doses of radiation with beams that are aimed from several different angles that are precisely targeted to kill the cancer cells without the traditional “spillover effect” seen in conventional radiation therapy.
Janet Gabrin, a spinal tumor patient, adds to the feature story, her experience, “this technology basically has saved my life…or at least the situations that I’ve been in at least three times.” Those interested in learning more about the unique treatment as well as potential patient candidates for the CyberKnife image guided robotic radiosurgery, are encouraged to visit http://www.morsecyberknife.com.
