Cancer patients know they deserve top-notch treatment from pro-fessionals with unbeatable expertise. That’s why so many choose CyberKnife of Southern California at Vista, which offers the most advanced radiosurgical care possible.
Radiation, of course, isn’t a new strategy in cancer therapy. But the CyberKnife stereotactic radiosurgery system destroys tumors with pinpoint accuracy, with doses targeted at locations measuring less than a milli-meter.
CyberKnife of Southern California at Vista has been designated as one of the top 5 CyberKnife centers worldwide for successful extra-cranial treatments. It is the only center on the entire West Coast to have received this designation.
The center’s physicians treat many kinds of cancer, including tumors in the brain, spine, lung, prostate, head and neck, pancreas, liver and kidney. In addition to targeting primary and metastatic tumors, the technology can be used to treat acoustic neuromas, arteriovenous malformations, trigeminal neuralgia and other tumors, and conditions treatable with radiation or surgery.
Dr. David Hodgens, the county’s first radiation oncologist to treat patients with radiosurgery, has treated more radiosurgery patients than any other physician in San Diego and has earned a nationwide reputation.
“The power and precision of radiosurgery is amazing,” Dr. -Hodgens says. “It’s a great primary treatment and can also serve as an adjuvant treatment.”
Dr. Patrick Linson, a Harvard-educated and trained radiation oncologist, serves as the medical director of CyberKnife of Southern California at Vista. He has teamed up with physicians from Harvard Medical School, Georgetown and the Swedish Hospital in Seattle in order to provide a multi-institutional cancer treatment protocol to our communities.
The team at CyberKnife of Southern California at Vista is dedicated to patients’ well-being and is committed to helping them regain their health through the most effective therapies possible.
