CKHS Physicians Attend CyberKnife CME Event at Citizens Bank Park
On Sept. 11, Philadelphia CyberKnife and Crozer-Keystone Health System co-sponsored a CME event, “CyberKnife Technology: Focus on Outcomes” at Citizens Bank Park.
The event featured presentations about CyberKnife radiosurgery, including the latest research and case presentations about the use of robotic radiosurgery to treat tumors throughout the body. Presenters included radiation oncologists John Lamond, M.D., Rachelle Lanciano, M.D., and Stephen Arrigo, M.D., as well as Stacey Su, M.D., director of Thoracic Surgical Oncology at DCMH.
CyberKnife treats cancerous and benign tumors in the brain, spine, lung, liver, pancreas and prostate through a process called stereotactic radiosurgery, a noninvasive method of treating tumors with high-dose radiation precisely aimed from different angles. The result is greatly increased accuracy that spares healthy tissue.
