Dr Aditya Gupta, who is aneurosurgeon, cyberknife at Artemis Hospital said, "CyberKnife radiation surgery
is one of the most advanced & non invasive therapy available for treating benign as well as malignant tumors with the use of precise beams of high-dose radiation.
Removal, just like tattoos, is through laser treatments, radiation surgery
and even cryotherapy (freezing).
It is an image-guided, robotic linear accelerator and provides image-guided radiation surgery
(IGRS) and image-guided radiation therapy( IGRT).
One of the reasons that MDM continued successfully was the core team members i.e.; Gynecologists, Medical and Radiation Oncologists and Radiologists who were present in 90-100% of the meetings .One year data showed that the work load was almost doubled not only in the outpatient department but also pre and post chemo radiation surgery
. In addition referrals from other areas also increased where surgical expertise were not present and they were in the operable stage.
Many oncologists use 'Cyberknife,' an appealing state-of-the-art non-invasive alternative to traditional radiation surgery
that targets the radiation beams on the tumour itself, thus saving surrounding healthy tissue.

He is helping Birmingham's Queen Elizabeth Hospital's Cyberknife campaign to buy a hi-tech robotic system capable of offering radiation surgery
on previously inoperable tumours.
A spokesman from the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham Charity said: "The CyberKnife machine is a robotic system that offers radiation surgery
on tumours that were previously inoperable or would cause a lot of collateral damage to patients.
In addition to IMRT and stereotactic radiation surgery
