Gamma Knife Versus CyberKnife...Setting the Record Straight

Competition to treat benign and malignant brain lesions, vascular malformations and functional conditions with stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) has increased dramatically in recent years. All-in-one systems like the CyberKnife are aggressively positioning themselves as being comparable to the Leksell Gamma Knife® in effectiveness and efficiency.

As one of the most experienced Gamma Knife treatment teams -- at one of the most active Gamma Knife centers in the country -- the team at JFK Medical Center feels compelled to set the record straight.

Gamma Knife stereotactic radiosurgery is the gold standard for the treatment of intracranial SRS procedures. Its clinical efficacy has been documented across nearly four decades, with more than 600,000 cases treated worldwide, providing the data for more than 3,000 publications in peer-reviewed medical literature. It is used as the performance metric against which other technologies (such as CyberKnife) are measured.

Perhaps the easiest way to state our case is to compare, point for point, the Gamma Knife with the CyberKnife.
