We’re pleased to now offer our cancer patients the CyberKnife® System, a non-invasive, painless treatment for cancerous and non-cancerous tumors where radiation therapy is advisable. This treatment is performed exclusively at the David C. Pratt Cancer Center at Mercy Hospital St. Louis.
CyberKnife destroys cancer cells and shrinks the growth of tumors while sparing healthy surrounding tissue. This minimizes potential side effects from radiation and can increase your quality of life following your treatment.
CyberKnife is used on tumors found in the brain, lung, liver, pancreas, prostate, spine and other areas of the body. Treatments typically last between 30 and 90 minutes and are delivered in one to five sessions.
If you’re interested in CyberKnife treatment or want to learn more, complete the form on this screen and a member of Mercy’s Radiation Oncology team will contact you within 48 hours.*
*Forms submitted on weekends may need additional response time.
The safety of our patients and caregivers has been, and always will be, our priority. We follow strict standards for disinfecting, required masking for patients, visitors and co-workers, and social distancing. Please do your part by following these and other CDC guidelines.
