Prostate Cancer Treatment in Oklahoma

A prostate cancer diagnosis can be overwhelming, but know this: you have options. At Oklahoma CyberKnife, we offer leading-edge, personalized care focused on your well-being.

When selecting your prostate cancer treatment, success and comfort are key. Because the prostate plays a vital role in urinary, sexual, and bowel health, the non-invasive CyberKnife system may be a good fit for your fight against cancer.

What is Prostate Cancer?

Prostate cancer is a common concern for men, affecting roughly 1 in 8 throughout their lives. This cancer develops in the prostate, a small gland responsible for seminal fluid production. The good news? Often, prostate cancer grows slowly and stays contained within the gland, causing minimal harm initially.

However, not all prostate cancers are the same. Some progress slowly and might require minimal intervention, while others are aggressive and spread rapidly.

Common Risk Factors of Prostate Cancer

  • Age (most cases occur in men over the age of 50)
  • Family history of prostate cancer
  • African American ethnicity
  • Obesity and poor diet
  • Exposure to certain toxins or chemicals

What is the CyberKnife System?

The CyberKnife system offers a revolutionary approach to radiation therapy. Unlike traditional methods, it utilizes a robotic arm for unparalleled precision, delivering high-dose radiation with thousands of beams directly to tumors.

This technology boasts real-time imaging, allowing it to track tumors and compensate for subtle movements like breathing, ensuring minimal exposure to healthy tissue. This translates to potentially fewer side effects and faster recovery times compared to traditional radiation therapy.

Why the CyberKnife for Prostate Cancer

  • Minimal Side Effects: The sub-millimeter accuracy of the CyberKnife has a higher chance of avoiding the prostate and the healthy tissues surrounding it, which is a common cause of side effects in conventional radiation treatments.
  • Fewer Treatments: More effective means fewer treatments are required. The CyberKnife treatment for prostate cancer can be completed in as little as 5 sessions over 1-2 weeks, compared to conventional radiation therapy which typically takes 40-45 sessions over 8-10 weeks.
  • Preservation of Functions: The prostate is a vital organ for urinary, sexual, and bowel health. The CyberKnife’s precision targets only the cancerous tumor, preserving the function of the organ.
  • Outpatient-based: No anesthesia or hospitalization is needed. Most of our patients can continue normal activities right after their treatment session.
