The liver is the largest organ in the body. Liver cancer starts in the liver and can spread to other organs in the body. Patients with liver cancer typically don’t show symptoms until the disease is beyond the primary stage and the cancer has advanced and spread to other parts of the body. When this occurs, tumors in secondary sites are known as metastatic liver cancer.
Oklahoma CyberKnife treats metastatic liver cancer with a procedure called stereotactic body radiation therapy using CyberKnife® technology. During the procedure, the CyberKnife system delivers targeted, high dose radiation to tumors with extreme precision. Treatment is noninvasive and completed within five or fewer outpatient sessions.
For patients with metastatic liver cancer, CyberKnife treatment can help minimize impact on overall quality of life by reducing recovery and treatment time while allowing patients to maintain their daily routines.
