Why Choose MedStar Franklin Square for Cyberknife Treatment?

MedStar Franklin Square Medical Center is a leader at treating cancerous and non-cancerous tumors with CyberKnife®. Our high patient volumes make our specialists among the most experienced CyberKnife experts in the world. MedStar Franklin Square’s CyberKnife Program offers health, hope, and improved quality of life to many people. 

Unlike other radiosurgery systems, our CyberKnife is equipped with a robotic arm that allows the best access to difficult-to-reach tumors. This is combined with state-of-the-art image-guidance technology that tracks and corrects for even the slightest movement, such as a patient’s breathing, during treatment. This reduces radiation spillover to other areas.

Successful CyberKnife treatment also depends on a team of trained specialists with extensive experience in using the technology to heal patients. MedStar Franklin Square offers the world's leading CyberKnife technology as well as the experts to help you get well in a warm, welcoming environment.
