CyberKnife Treatment: How to Prepare

The treatment process at our center is completely focused on the patient as we aim to provide the best care and experience possible. Below are some helpful tips for patients to prepare for CyberKnife treatment:

  • Ask questions – Don’t hesitate to ask any questions you or your loved one may have about CyberKnife treatment.
  • Dress comfortably – During treatment, you’ll be asked to lie still on a treatment table. For this reason, patients are asked to wear comfortable clothing during treatment. Jewelry is allowed unless it is close to the area being treated.
  • Relax – This is a painless procedure with no sedation required. Some patients even take naps during treatment. Feel free to bring an iPod or CD with your favorite music on the day of treatment and we can play it for you.
  • Plan the rest of your day – A key benefit of CyberKnife treatment is that sessions typically only last 30-90 minutes, and with little to no recovery time, you’re free to plan the rest of your day or go right back to your normal routine.
