What Is Cyberknife Treatment-Among Pakistan’s Second Robotic Radio Surgery

Cyberknife therapy is a revolutionary non-invasive treatment that stands as a ray of hope for patients with tumors and conditions requiring radiation therapy. For patients facing inoperable or complex tumors, CyberKnife is a lifeline. It boasts a remarkable 90% success rate and offers treatment for conditions like prostate, lung, brain, spine, liver, and adrenal glands. The best part is that at Ghurki Trust Teaching Hospital, we treat all patients free of cost. Globally, CyberKnife Systems are a rarity, with only a few hundred in existence. Often, the cost of this life-changing technology is prohibitively high.

Why Is CyberKnife Special?

Think of the CyberKnife in Pakistan as a healing missile, only it’s tiny and doesn’t explode. Instead, it delivers targeted radiation to the exact spot where you need it. It’s like a superhero archer hitting a bullseye every time. What makes CyberKnife so special is its precision. It can shoot beams of radiation from lots of different angles, each one finer than a strand of your hair. This means it can hit the bad stuff (like tumors) right on target while keeping your healthy parts safe. 

What Can CyberKnife Treat?

CyberKnife therapy is a medical marvel that excels at precision and versatility. It is an invaluable tool in the fight against various medical conditions, offering tailored treatments that can significantly impact patient outcomes. The best part? It’s right here at Ghurki Trust Teaching Hospital, ready to make your journey to recovery as smooth as possible. Here’s a closer look at the stages and diseases where CyberKnife shines the brightest.

CyberKnife is a game-changer for patients diagnosed with cancer in its early stages. Its pinpoint accuracy allows for the delivery of high doses of radiation to the tumor while sparing healthy surrounding tissue. This minimally invasive approach is particularly effective for prostate, lung, and brain cancers, spine, liver, and adrenal glands often eliminating the need for extensive surgery.

In cases where surgery is not an option due to the tumor’s location or the patient’s health, CyberKnife becomes a lifeline. It can treat tumors in challenging areas such as the spine or liver, where traditional surgery may be too risky.

For patients who experience a recurrence of cancer after initial treatment, CyberKnife provides a ray of hope. Its ability to precisely target recurring tumors offers a chance at extended remission.

CyberKnife’s non-invasive and gentle approach makes it suitable for medically fragile or elderly patients who may not tolerate surgery well. It offers them an effective treatment option with minimal physical strain.

Beyond cancer treatment, CyberKnife can be used to treat non-cancerous growths and functional disorders. It’s been successful in addressing conditions like trigeminal neuralgia, a severe facial pain disorder, and arteriovenous malformations (AVMs), abnormal tangles of blood vessels.

The Cyberknife Journey At Ghurki Trust Teaching Hospital

The story of Cyberknife treatment in Lahore at Ghurki Trust Teaching Hospital is a tale of progress, hope, and unwavering dedication. Our journey with CyberKnife began on a historic day – March 7, 2022. It was a day that marked the inauguration of Pakistan’s second CyberKnife System right here at our hospital. This milestone not only created ripples in Pakistan’s healthcare landscape but also promised a new era in patient care.

Where We Stand Today

Since the first day, we’ve witnessed remarkable strides in healthcare. CyberKnife has been tirelessly working to offer precise, non-invasive treatments to our patients. Its beams of hope have reached those with conditions like prostate cancer, lung tumors, brain ailments, and many more. Our commitment to providing state-of-the-art healthcare to our community remains unwavering. The CyberKnife is more than just technology; it’s a symbol of our promise to offer accessible, world-class treatment options to all who walk through our doors.

Support The Cyberknife Initiative-Your Contribution Matters

At Ghurki Trust Teaching Hospital, we firmly believe that together, we can change lives. The CyberKnife initiative represents a leap forward in healthcare, but its true potential can only be realized with your support. Every contribution, big or small, brings us closer to providing cutting-edge care to those who need it most. Your donation directly impacts the lives of patients facing complex medical conditions.

Our Success Stories

Amidst this journey of progress, we’ve been touched by inspiring stories of patients who found renewed hope and healing through the CyberKnife. These stories illuminate the path of our mission. At 90 years old, Mian Muhammad, a chronic diabetic patient with no family history of cancer, faced a daunting brain tumor diagnosis. CyberKnife, with its precision and gentleness, transformed his life, offering hope where there seemed to be none.

Cyberknife Treatment Cost-Your Donation, Their Hope 

According to the Dawn Newspaper report, only 250 CyberKnife systems are installed around the world. A CyberKnife operation can cost in Europe/USA from USD 50,000 to 90,000, which is quite expensive for most patients. So, we invite you to be part of this transformative journey. Your generosity can help us expand our capabilities, reach more patients, and offer hope where it’s needed most.
