Spine Tumor Radiosurgery

Radiosurgery is a technique in which narrow, focused beams of radiation are used to destroy tumors without harming the surrounding healthy tissue.

The CyberKnife, developed at Stanford, has been used for patient treatment since 1994. The system delivers high-dose precision radiation directly to cancers of the spine in an outpatient setting

Clinical trials are research studies that evaluate a new medical approach, device, drug, or other treatment. As a Stanford Health Care patient, you have access to the latest, advanced clinical trials.
