A Brief History of Cyberknife Radiosurgery
The first CyberKnife prototype was installed for clinical use at Stanford University Medical Center in 1994, under the direction of neurosurgeon Dr. John Adler. In 2001, the FDA approved radiosurgery treatments with the CyberKnife for lesions anywhere in the body. To date, over 100,000 patients have been treated with the CyberKnife. Research is ongoing at major medical centers as more indications for treatment are explored.
