What is radiosurgery?

Question: 

What is radiosurgery?

Answer: 

Radiosurgery is a form of radiation therapy that uses precisely targeted radiation to destroy tumors. Radiosurgery is non-invasive – there is no cutting involved. The term “surgery” refers to the high level of precision of the energy beams. Radiosurgery is commonly used by neurosurgeons to treat conditions within the brain and spine. Stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) is a treatment that uses precisely targeted radiation to destroy tumors located outside the brain and spine. The CyberKnife® System was designed for both high-precision radiosurgical and SBRT procedures.
