High Tech Treatment Passes Medicare Test
A new procedure for prostate cancer is now available through Medicare for Florida men.
CyberKnife was approved Thursday. It is a non-invasive alternative to surgery for the treatment of both cancerous and non-cancerous tumors anywhere in the body. The treatment, which delivers beams of high dose radiation to tumors with extreme accuracy,
offers new hope to patients worldwide.
"This is just another option and we're just happy that we can offer that to the men of Florida as we have been doing in Gainesville since 2006," says Oncologist Mark Perman.
Coverage begins October 5th. Treatments last between 30 and 90 minutes with relatively no recovery time.
