Brain diseases and CyberKnife

The treatment of brain tumors, brain metastases, choroidal melanomas, acoustic neuromas, meningiomas, angiomas (arteriovenous malformations) and trigeminal neuralgia with CyberKnife® technology at the CyberKnife® Center Soest has made great progress in recent years. This innovative treatment method allows doctors to apply precise and targeted radiation therapy to these specific areas in the brain. On this page we will take a closer look at the applications of CyberKnife® technology in the treatment of these different brain disorders.

Indications Brain diseases

• choroidal melanomas
• Acoustic neuromas
• Angiomas (arteriovenous malformations)
• Brain metastasis
• brain tumors
• Neurinoma
• Meningiomas
• Trigeminal neuralgia

Brain tumors and brain metastases

Brain tumors are abnormally growing cells in the brain that can be benign or malignant. Accurate and precise radiation therapy is critical to the treatment of brain tumors. The CyberKnife® system uses state-of-the-art imaging technologies such as CT and MRI scans to obtain a detailed picture of the tumor. Doctors can use these images to locate the tumor precisely and adjust the radiotherapy accordingly. The CyberKnife® system then uses a high-precision robotic arm that focuses intense radiation onto the tumor while sparing surrounding healthy tissues.
Brain metastases are tumors that have spread to the brain from other types of cancer in the body. Treatment of brain metastases requires targeted radiation therapy to destroy the tumor cells while sparing healthy tissue. The CyberKnife® system offers the possibility of targeting radiation therapy precisely to the brain metastases. By using real-time imaging during treatment, the CyberKnife® system can correct for patient movement to ensure maximum accuracy.

Choroidal melanoma and acoustic neuroma

Choroidal melanomas are rare but potentially dangerous tumors that can develop in the choroid of the eye. Treatment of uveal melanoma requires precise radiation therapy to destroy the tumor and spare the surrounding healthy tissue. The CyberKnife® system allows physicians to precisely tailor radiation therapy to the tumor without having to perform invasive surgical procedures. This is especially important if the tumor is close to sensitive structures like the optic nerve.
Acoustic neuromas are benign tumors that affect the auditory nerve in the inner ear. Treating acoustic neuromas requires precise radiation therapy to shrink or control the tumor while preserving the auditory nerve and other surrounding structures. The CyberKnife® system offers a gentle and effective option for treating acoustic neuromas. By precisely targeting the radiation therapy, doctors can target the tumor while protecting the surrounding healthy tissue.

Meningiomas and angiomas

Meningiomas are tumors that arise from the lining of the brain or spinal cord. Treatment of meningiomas requires precise radiation therapy to destroy the tumor while sparing healthy tissue. The CyberKnife® system offers a non-invasive option for treating meningioma. By combining state-of-the-art imaging and precise radiation therapy, doctors can precisely localize the tumor and provide a tailored treatment.

Angiomas (arteriovenous malformations) are abnormal vasculature in the brain that can cause severe bleeding or neurological problems. Treatment of angiomas requires precise and targeted radiation therapy to destroy the abnormal blood vessels and spare the surrounding healthy tissue. The CyberKnife® System offers a non-invasive option for treating angiomas. The CyberKnife® system’s high-precision radiation therapy can be targeted to the abnormal blood vessels to ensure effective treatment.

Treatment of trigeminal neuralgia

Trigeminal neuralgia is a condition in which the trigeminal nerve causes severe pain in the face. Treating trigeminal neuralgia requires precise radiation therapy to calm the affected nerve and reduce pain. The CyberKnife® system offers a gentle and non-invasive option for the treatment of trigeminal neuralgia. By precisely targeting radiation therapy, the trigeminal nerve can be targeted to reduce pain and improve the patient’s quality of life.

Incredible. The team from reception to Dr. Ernst and Dr. teaching
Without them I probably wouldn’t be here anymore.
Thank you thank you thank you

From the first contact to the consultation, from the treatment to the regular follow-up appointments, from 2012 to today, everything has always been to my complete satisfaction, especially the competent advice from Dr. Lehrke helped me a lot with my illness. Most importantly, the Cyberknife treatment has been successful so far

Stefan B.

My wife was very happy. Especially about the very, very friendly staff and doctors.
Unfortunately that is so rare.

In my case, I can only enthusiastically report that I have never met such competent people in my life who have such a positive attitude towards people. My diagnosis was assessed conscientiously and meticulously under time pressure in order to then offer me a hope-giving treatment perspective, which in retrospect has helped me a lot. Otherwise I would have been at the mercy of the worst consequences. I can only praise the entire Cyberknife team, from doctors to highly specialized specialists and administrative staff, for their high level of competence, courage in approaching difficult cases and the interpersonal competence (ability to empathize) that is rarely seen in this way. Every single person and their ability or commitment would only be found in this society with immense effort. In the Cyberknife Center Soest you will find a whole herd of these exceptional people. As far as the entire Klinikum Soest is concerned, with which I had little contact apart from a few excerpts (radiology), something similar is reflected. Nice that there are still such incredible healing places.

I was back at the Cyberknife Soest in February 2021 with suspected lung cancer/metastases. Unfortunately, it was not possible to get a room in the hospital under corona conditions and unfortunately I had to go to a hotel. Unfortunately, because the clinic is great. I was there for the first time in 2017 because of my lung metastases, in 2018 again for radiation with Cyberknife, then it was quiet until 2021. I have the competence of Dr. Seriously appreciated, the patience and calm of the Cyberknife team is an island of refuge for agitated cancer patients. Very good food, clean and ultra-modern rooms, super-friendly staff, the friendliness of the doctors all top notch. I would go to this clinic again and again (from Bremen!!). This time too, the metastases have disappeared and I hope for a very long time. If it weren’t for the Cyberknife, I would have suffocated long ago and would no longer be alive. Thank you, dear clinic and staff, for the high quality of life over the past 4 years thanks to a fatal illness.

Ich war mit Verdacht auf Lungenkrebs/Metastasen im Februar 2021 wieder Mal im Cyberknife Soest. Leider war es unter Coronabedingungen nicht möglich ein Zimmer im Krankenhaus zu bekommen und ich musste leider in ein Hotel. Leider, weil das Klinikum große Klasse ist. 2017 war ich zum ersten Mal da, wegen meiner Lungenmetastasen, 2018 nochmals zur Bestrahlung mit Cyberknife, dann war erst mal bis 2021 Ruhe. Ich habe die Kompetenz von Frau Dr. Ernst sehr geschätzt, die Geduld und Ruhe des Cyberknife Teams sind eine Insel der Zuflucht für aufgeregte Krebspatienten. Sehr gutes Essen, saubere und hochmoderne Zimmer, superfreundliches Personal, die Freundlichkeit der Ärzte alles erste Sahne. Ich würde immer wieder in diese Klinik fahren (aus Bremen!!).Auch diese Mal sind die Metastasen verschwunden und ich hoffe ,für sehr lange Zeit. Gäbe es den Cyberknife nicht, wäre ich schon lange erstickt und würde nicht mehr leben. Danke, liebe Klinik und Personal für die schon 4 Jahre lange hohe Lebensqualität Undanks einer tödlichen Krankheit.

In meinem Fall kann ich nur begeistert berichten, dass ich in meinem Leben noch nicht auf so kompetente, dem Menschen so positiv zugewandte Personen getroffen bin. Unter Zeitdruck wurde meine Diagnose gewissenhaft und akribisch beurteilt, um mir dann eine hoffnungsspendende Behandlungsperspektive anzubieten, die mir jetzt im Rückblick sehr geholfen hat. Ich wäre sonst schlimmsten Konsequenzen ausgeliefert gewesen. Ich kann nur in Bezug auf das gesamte Cyberknife Team, von Ärzten bis zum hochspezifischen Fachpersonal und Verwaltungspersonal, die hohe Kompetenz, Courage an schwierige Fälle heranzugehen und die selten so erlebte zwischenmenschliche Kompetenz (Empathiefähigkeit) loben. Jeder einzelne Mensch und dessen Können bzw. Engagement würde in dieser Gesellschaft nur mit immensem Aufwand zu finden sein. Im Cyberknife Zentrum Soest findet man gleich eine ganze Herde dieser Ausnahmemenschen. Was das gesamte Klinikum Soest angeht, mit dem ich bis auf ein paar Ausschnitte (Radiologie) wenig Kontakte hatte, spiegelt sich ähnliches wider. Schön, dass es noch solche unglaublichen Heilungsorte gibt.

Meine Frau war sehr zufrieden. Besonders über das sehr,  sehr freundliche Personal und Ärzte.
Das gibt es leider so selten.

Peter M.

Vom Erstkontakt bis zum Beratungsgespräch, von der Behandlung bis zu den regelmäßigen Nachsorgeterminen, von 2012 bis heute, war alles stets zu meiner vollsten Zufriedenheit, besonders die kompetente Beratung durch Dr. Lehrke hat mir bei meiner Erkrankung sehr geholfen. Am wichtigsten jedoch ist, dass die Behandlung mit dem Cyberknife bisher erfolgreich war

Unglaublich. Das Team vom Empfang bis hin zu Frau Dr. Ernst und Herr Dr. Lehrke.
Ohne die wäre ich wohl nicht mehr hier.
Danke, danke, danke
