What is Spinal Cancer?

Spinal cancer refers to the growth of abnormal cells within the spinal cord, the surrounding structures, or the vertebrae. These cancers can be either primary, originating in the spine, or secondary, spreading from other parts of the body. Spinal tumors can be benign (non-cancerous) or malignant (cancerous), and their location can significantly impact their effects on the body.

Spinal cancer can cause a variety of symptoms, including back pain, numbness, weakness, and difficulty walking, depending on the tumor’s size and location. Early diagnosis and treatment are crucial, as the spine plays a critical role in movement and neurological function.

Treatment options may include surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, and advanced techniques like the CyberKnife system, which offers non-invasive precision treatment.

The CyberKnife System for Spinal Cancer

The CyberKnife system is particularly beneficial for spinal cancer due to its exceptional precision and adaptability. The system continuously tracks and adjusts to the slightest movements, ensuring that radiation is delivered with pinpoint accuracy.

This level of precision is crucial for treating tumors in the delicate structures of the spine, reducing the risk of side effects and preserving vital functions.

Benefits of the CyberKnife Treatment

  • High Precision: The CyberKnife targets spinal tumors with exceptional accuracy, minimizing damage to sensitive structures like the spinal cord, thereby reducing the likelihood of long-term side effects or complications.
  • Real-Time Tracking: The system adjusts to the slightest movements in real-time, ensuring consistent and accurate radiation delivery to the targeted area, even if the tumor shifts during treatment due to breathing or other bodily movements.
  • Fewer Treatment Sessions: This advanced treatment requires fewer sessions (5 vs. 45) compared to conventional radiation therapy, making the treatment process more convenient and less disruptive to the patient’s daily life.
  • Reduced Side Effects: The targeted approach of the CyberKnife minimizes the exposure of healthy tissues to radiation, reducing side effects, and helping to preserve spinal function and overall health during and after treatment.
