CyberKnife® stereotactic radiosurgery treatment is a noninvasive method of destroying tumors with high-dose, highly-accurate radiation, while minimizing damage to healthy tissue.


Those who may be candidates for this revolutionary technology can put their trust in Overlook Medical Center’s CyberKnife Center, part of Atlantic Health System Cancer Care. We were the first hospital in the Northeastern United States to offer CyberKnife and have more than 12 years of experience treating patients with it. In fact, we’ve used stereotactic radiosurgery to treat more 2,000 patients with various types of tumors, including the most brain cancer patients of any other medical center in the Tri-State area.

Benefits of CyberKnife Treatment

  • Provides access to difficult-to-reach tumors that would have been impossible to treat in the past
  • Reduces treatment time from more than 40 visits to just five or less
  • Requires no incision, so there is no blood loss or pain and virtually no recovery time
  • Performed on an outpatient basis
  • Covered by Medicare and most private insurance companies

In addition, Overlook Medical Center uses the latest model of the technology, which allows our team to successfully treat even larger tumors than previously and eliminates the need for invasive or uncomfortable methods to minimize patient movement during the procedure.
