Liver Cancer Treatment in Columbus

At Columbus CyberKnife, we are committed to providing advanced liver cancer treatment options.

Our state-of-the-art CyberKnife system and a team of experienced radiation oncologists offer a non-invasive, highly precise form of radiation therapy that sets new standards in cancer care.

This revolutionary technology allows us to treat liver cancer with unparalleled accuracy, ensuring that our patients receive effective treatment with minimal side effects.

Understanding Liver Cancer

Liver cancer, particularly hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), the most common form, typically arises in the context of chronic liver diseases like cirrhosis. Cirrhosis itself can result from long-standing hepatitis B or C infections, chronic alcohol use, or nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), a severe form of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease.

Additional risk factors for liver cancer include diabetes, exposure to aflatoxins (toxins produced by certain molds on stored crops), and cigarette smoking. Liver cancer can be asymptomatic in its early stages but may eventually lead to symptoms such as weight loss, abdominal pain, jaundice, and fatigue​​.

What is the CyberKnife Treatment?

The CyberKnife treatment offers several advantages over traditional surgical approaches, especially for liver cancer:

True Robotic Delivery Precision: The CyberKnife system features a LINAC (linear accelerator) mounted on a robotic arm, providing the flexibility to deliver radiation from multiple angles. This unique setup allows for treatment of complex or hard-to-reach tumors in the liver with high precision.

Real-Time Motion Synchronization: Liver tumors can move during treatment due to breathing and other natural body movements. The CyberKnife system is equipped with motion synchronization technology. This innovative feature tracks the tumor’s movement and adjusts the radiation beam in real-time, ensuring accurate targeting throughout the treatment session.

Benefits of the CyberKnife Treatment for Liver Cancer

The CyberKnife provides a promising treatment option for liver cancer, especially for patients who cannot undergo surgery. 

  • Non-invasive Treatment: No incisions are required, which significantly reduces the risk of complications and the recovery time.
  • Pinpoint Precision: With its robotic arm and real-time imaging, the CyberKnife can deliver radiation to the exact location of the liver tumor, even as the patient breathes.
  • Reduced Side Effects: The accuracy of the CyberKnife system helps protect healthy liver tissue, potentially leading to fewer side effects compared to conventional treatments.

What to Expect During the CyberKnife Treatment Process

Initial Consultation: At Columbus CyberKnife, our treatment process begins with a thorough consultation to assess the specifics of your liver cancer. Our team of specialists will review your medical history, imaging results, and overall health to determine if CyberKnife treatment is the best option for you.

Treatment Planning: Once you are deemed a suitable candidate, our team develops a customized treatment plan using advanced imaging techniques. This plan outlines the precise dosage of radiation and the angles from which it will be delivered, tailored specifically to your tumor’s location and size.

Treatment Sessions: The CyberKnife treatments for liver cancer are typically completed in one to five sessions, depending on the individual case. Each session lasts between 30 to 60 minutes. Most patients experience no discomfort during the procedure and can return to their normal activities shortly after each session.

Follow-Up Care: After completing treatment, ongoing monitoring is crucial. Our team will schedule follow-up appointments to monitor your recovery and the effectiveness of the treatment, adjusting care plans as necessary to support your health and quality of life.
