MHL CyberKnife Enquiry Service
Applying to other centres
Now it is well accepted and there are many centres around the world, but expertise must inevitably lag behind.
Back in 2006 we had to work hard to explain the CyberKnife system to patients and to obtain cooperation from doctors and health insurers.
Doctor and patient at the CyberKnife centre at Frankfurt University Hospital, Germany, where GammaKnife radiosurgery is also offered.
These include uveal melanomas (eye cancer), heart treatments (cardiac sarcoma) and new guidance systems to avoid the need for implanting markers before treatment in the abdomen.
Easy to travel for best treatment
CyberKnife is only as good as the surgeons who operate it. Some are neurosurgeons, whilst others specialise in different areas of surgery and treatment.
Skill and equipment
CyberKnife treatments are short and simple for patients, so it is easy to travel for the best treatment and fly home within a few days.
It requires many accessories, specialised software and then training to make different types of treatment more accurate and effective.
Some treatments away from the brain and spine are more complex and new CyberKnife centres can be slow to adopt them.
Enquiry for CyberKnife radiosurgery
We work with English-speaking CyberKnife centres in Europe, including pioneering centres which offer training and technical support to new CyberKnife centres. We can also introduce patients to CyberKnife centres or hospitals outside our regular service.
MHL offers patients a choice of expert CyberKnife radiosurgery centres with different specialities
Enquire now without cost or commitment and we will tell you what we can suggest in your case.
We can also have your case reviewed at no extra cost for other treatments at university hospitals, or for proton or ion beam therapy.
Expert treatment planning reduces the total radiation to the body. Also the longer a treatment lasts, the more likely a patient is to fidget, so a shorter treatment is also a more accurate one.
As with anything else, the skill of CyberKnife surgeons increases with experience. Treatments become faster and this is not just a matter of convenience.
Expert CyberKnife centres
For this reason you may not get an answer when you apply to them or you might be one of their first patients in this area.
We have long experience with CyberKnife self-referrals and we know what the doctors will require to review your case.
Even if you do not wish to travel to one of the centres that we suggest, we can still help you to apply to any CyberKnife centre of your choice.
We work closely with a number of expert centres linked to university hospitals, which have been at the forefront of developing new treatments.
As an experienced intermediary, we can open doors to hospitals that do not usually respond to patients directly.
We know their specialities and we can guide you accordingly
