New hope is being brought to cancer patients living in or visiting the Greater Binghamton area. Words like "inoperable" and "untreatable" to describe their tumors are words of the past now that surgery of the future is here today …

The campus of Wilson Regional Medical Center, Johnson City, NY, is now the site of the CyberKnife Stereotactic Radiosurgery System, a form of robotic radiation surgery that is presenting a revolutionary new option in cancer treatment. Cyberknife Center of New York and its affiliated doctors will be using this amazing new technology. Here are just a few of the reasons that make it remarkable:

  • There are no incisions.
  • Treatment is painless.
  • There is no need for anesthesia or blood transfusions.
  • The risk of infection from traditional surgery is eliminated.
  • Tumors anywhere in the body can be treated.
  • Healthy tissues adjacent to the treated diseased cells are undamaged.
  • Treatments take only 30 to 90 minutes to complete and require a total of one to five visits, often in successive days.
  • Patients visit on an outpatient basis and experience little or no side effects. Immediately following a treatment, patients can go to work or out for dinner.
