Stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT), also known as radiosurgery, is an extremely precise, high-dose form of radiation therapy.
SBRT for Spine Cancer
For patients with spine cancer, stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) delivers high doses of radiation in fewer and painless treatment sessions.
Radiation Therapy for Skin Cancer
Radiation therapy may be a treatment for skin cancer. It's usually used with other treatments as an alternative for surgery or for pain relief.
