Overlook Hospital is the only hospital in northern New Jersey to offer the revolutionary CyberKnife to treat tumors and lesions in the brain, spine, lung, liver, pancreas and prostate. CyberKnife is a radiosurgical device that combines robotics and sophisticated image-guidance technology to deliver precisely targeted doses of radiation to cancerous and non-cancerous tumors – even tumors that are beyond the reach of other radiosurgery systems.
The CyberKnife is noninvasive, highly accurate and painless. There is no incision, no blood and virtually no recovery time. The physicians of Union County Neurosurgical Associates use the Cyberknife system in the treatment of specific and indicated cranial disorders which may include glioblastomas, acoustic neuromas, pituitary adenomas, AVM’s, trigeminal neuralgia, and other conditions.
