CYBERKNIFE – THE WORLD’S MOST INNOVATIVE CANCER TREATMENT

WITH SUBMILLIMETRE PRECISION

WELCOME TO THE CYBERKNIFE CENTER HAMBURG

 

Hamburg is a healthcare hub and home to one of Germany’s most innovative cancer therapy centres. Our CyberKnife Center offers you high-precision radiosurgery tumour treatment. Called CyberKnife technology, a virtual scalpel reliably destroys unhealthy without damaging healthy tissue.

 

CyberKnife is a non-invasive photon treatment with submillimetre accuracy. It’s ideal for out-patients, requires no surgery and no hospitalisation. It’s more pleasant for tumour patients because CyberKnife therapy also means no anaesthetic nor a stay in hospital. Talk to us about your expectations and concerns. We’re happy to explain how and on whom this innovative, high-tech CyberKnife technology can be used.

 

Our Hamburg CyberKnife team is at your side.

 

We’re there for you.

RADIOSURGERY – TECHNOLOGY WTIH NANOMILLIMETRE ACCURACY

A high-tech option with lots of advantages: radiosurgery has now become one of the least invasive and most promising methods of radiotherapy. CyberKnife technology guarantees that benign and malignant tumours are destroyed with maximum precision. This treatment is applied to the outside of your body. The operation requires no excision and has a comparatively low degree of invasiveness. It spares surrounding healthy tissue and won’t leave you with any major side effects/long-term effects.

The latest CyberKnife VSI System effectively combats tumour-based diseases extremely reliably and is well tolerated by patients. 

 

The clever part is that you’re treated while in a relaxed position. Any movement you make is monitored digitally so that the tumour can be destroyed effectively and with pinpoint accuracy. Fixation screws, of the type used in a Gamma Knife, are not required for CyberKnife treatment. And, in contrast to the Gamma Knife, we can use the CyberKnife on the whole body.

The Cyberknife can provide a cure in just one session, if indications permit this type of therapy.

THE FIRST CONSULTATION


The first consultation with our experts will allow you to discuss all details of your up-and-coming radiotherapy, or radiosurgical Cyberknife treatment in Hamburg. Please feel free to put any questions or voice any concerns. A consultation in English is also no problem. At the same time, we’d like to gain as detailed a picture as possible of you and the progression of your disease. We’d also like to hear about any diagnostic and therapeutic measures already carried out. Your radiotherapist will explain the procedure and treatment goal, as well as possible side effects, in a clear and detailed manner. We will also discuss alternatives to radiotherapy if these are appropriate for you. 

 

We take the time to guide you through this new, unfamiliar situation so that you can make a fully informed decision. If you wish, please take some notes and bring your partner, a family member, or a person you trust to the consultation. It’s ideal if we can review your medical records a few days before this consultation. These are easy to upload HERE. The records and diagnostic images (CT, MRI or PET) allow our team to assess your medical history and consult other doctors treating you or your surgeon if required.


PLANNING RADIOTHERAPY 

 

Our radiotherapists and physicists plan your radiotherapy at Strahlenzentrum Hamburg in detail. In this case, we’re aiming for maximum efficiency but a minimum risk to surrounding healthy tissue. We use imaging techniques like computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to establish the exact location of the tissue requiring treatment. We then define the optimum volume and configuration for the region requiring radiation. We also calculate the best radiation dose and distribution for you. 

 

A consistent procedure demands you adopt exactly the same position for each treatment. We make customised positioning supports for you to ensure this is the case.

A laser beam helps us to align the radiotherapy device with the markings and check positioning is accurate. During the treatment, you lie down and relax in the therapy room. An intercom and video system keep you in constant contact with our team. Should you experience any problems or discomfort, we can stop the radiotherapy at any time if necessary.

 

We’d be happy to answer your questions about special skin care or personal care, diet and any other routines.

A detailed final consultation with your radiotherapist will be carried out after you last session. We want to engage with you personally and as healthcare specialists. During the consultation, we’ll be interested in finding out whether acute symptoms of irritation have subsided promptly. We’ll discuss post-treatment care options and examinations. And above all, we’ll want to know how you’re feeling.


There’s nothing more important than your health. And we’ll treat you with the utmost respect and give you top priority.
