CyberKnife is a non-invasive alternative to surgery for the treatment
of both cancerous and non-cancerous tumors throughout the body,
including the prostate, lung, brain, spine, liver, pancreas and kidney.
The treatment – which delivers beams of high dose radiation to tumors
with extreme accuracy – offers new hope to patients worldwide. It
provides a pain-free, non-surgical option for patients who have
inoperable or surgically complex tumors, or who may be looking for an
alternative to surgery.
Mended Hearts offers hope and educates
patients about cardiovascular health, empowering them as they manage a
heart-healthy lifestyle. Mended Hearts meetings are free and open to the
public. For more information visit www.uhs.net.
