The CyberKnife treats patients through a process called stereotactic radiosurgery, a noninvasive method of treating tumors with high-dose precisely aimed from different angles. While the name may conjure images of knives and scalpels, Cyberknife treatment does not require surgery. Treatment is painless and noninvasive, so there is no cutting or anesthesia required. CyberKnife destroys cancerous and benign tumors with high-dose, highly accurate radiation beams, while minimizing damage to the healthy tissue. Worldwide there are over 250 institutions that treat difficult-to-reach tumors that may have been impossible to treat in the past.
With its flair and its maritime charming atmosphere, Hamburg is considered as one of the most beautiful cities in Germany.
