New Delhi, 7th March 2024: Artemis Hospital, a leading name in advanced healthcare services, proudly announced a remarkable milestone in the field of medical science with the successful completion of over 1500 Cyberknife (CK) radiosurgeries. This achievement underscores the hospital’s commitment to providing cutting-edge, non-invasive treatment options for both cancerous and non-cancerous conditions, emphasizing its position as one of the largest and most experienced centers in India for Cyberknife surgeries, particularly for the brain.

Present on the occasion were Dr. Aditya Gupta, Director of Neurosurgery and Cyberknife at Artemis Hospital Gurugram, who emphasized about the advantages of cyberknife radiosurgery in treating various types of cancerous and non-cancerous tumors.

Dr. Aditya Gupta, Director of Neurosurgery and Cyberknife at Artemis Hospital Gurugram said “Cyberknife radiosurgery stands at the forefront of medical innovation, offering a beacon of hope for patients with conditions previously deemed challenging to treat. Unlike traditional methods, Cyberknife therapy is a non-invasive, pain-free procedure that eliminates the risks associated with conventional surgery. By employing sophisticated robotics and real-time imaging, it delivers highly targeted radiation with pinpoint accuracy, sparing surrounding healthy tissues and minimizing side effects.”

The utilization of Cyberknife technology, especially in India, has been limited despite its significant advantages. Depending on the type, size, location of the tumor, a patient must be carefully chosen for better and enhanced outcomes. Artemis Hospital has been a pioneer in recognizing and harnessing the potential of Cyberknife for a broad spectrum of cases, ranging from cancerous tumors to benign conditions. This versatility, coupled with a systematic approach to patient selection, ensures that those undergoing Cyberknife therapy at Artemis Hospital receive personalized, effective treatment without the complications associated with other modalities.

Explaining about this revolutionary treatment method, Dr Aditya Gupta further added ” Cyberknife radiosurgery has transformed the landscape of cancer treatment, offering a ray of hope to those battling complex conditions. At Artemis, we’ve harnessed this technology to its full potential, providing our patients with a 100% safe, pain-free, and non-invasive treatment option. Our success in over 1500 cases is a testament to our commitment to excellence and innovation in patient care.”

One of the most noteworthy applications of Cyberknife at Artemis Hospital has been in the treatment of metastatic cancers in the brain. Patients who might otherwise have been subjected to whole brain radiation therapy (WBRT), with its attendant risks and side effects, can receive focused Cyberknife radiation therapy. This is particularly beneficial for treating repeated lesions, a scenario where WBRT is not viable due to the risk of exceeding the brain’s tolerance for radiation.

Artemis Hospital’s milestone in Cyberknife radiosurgery is more than a numerical achievement; it represents a paradigm shift in treating various conditions, affirming the hospital’s role as a beacon of advanced, compassionate care in India and beyond.
