If you've been told the only way to treat lung cancer is with surgery – surgery that involves cracking your chest and painful incisions – call First Dayton CyberKnife to see what Dr. Hughes and his team can do for you. Or, perhaps surgery isn't even an option for your lung cancer, because it would do more harm than good. With more powerful treatment options than any other center in the region, First Dayton will find the best way to beat your lung cancer, without surgery. And, all of First Dayton's radiation treatments are outpatient, so you don't have to stay in the hospital, where other complications can occur.
CyberKnife radiosurgery is Dr. Hughes' breakthrough technology in the battle against lung cancer. And it's radiation therapy, not surgery. No incision. No pain. The numbers speak for themselves:
As the most advanced radiation technology available today, CyberKnife is the only system that uses real-time imaging to track and adjust for tumor movement during treatment. Essentially, the CyberKnife "breathes" with you. What does this mean to you?
CyberKnife can treat early-stage cancer, before your lung cancer has spread. It's also an effective option for recurrent or metastatic cancer – or for patients who want a noninvasive option that doesn't involve cutting, stiches or long recovery times.
Intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) is often an effective treatment option for more advanced lung cancer because of its precision and ease of delivery. Most IRMT treatments are combined with chemotherapy.
First Dayton also offers $99 diagnostic CT scans to qualified patients. If you are high risk for lung cancer, a diagnostic CT can help you find out and start fighting it, fast. Read more about diagnostic CTs at First Dayton here.
