About our Center
About the Swedish Radiosurgery Center
The Swedish Radiosurgery Center in Seattle, Wash., offers both CyberKnife and Gamma Knife technology. Both of these treatment options use high-dose radiation beams to treat small or complex, cancerous and noncancerous tumors.
CyberKnife can be used to treat tumors of the brain, breast, head and neck, kidney, liver, lung, pancreas, pelvis, prostate, spine, and other parts of the body.
Gamma Knife is specifically used to treat tumors of the brain, head and neck, and may also be used to treat neurological conditions, such as arteriovenous malformations, essential tremor and trigeminal neuralgia.
Our center provides a serene and comforting environment for patients who are receiving these highly sophisticated treatments. Our Radiosurgery Team is dedicated to identifying the most appropriate treatment that will achieve the best results.
Because our center is part of the Swedish Cancer Institute, all of our patients have access to the full scope of services and support available at our nationally recognized cancer-care center – including access to specialized classes, support groups and integrated care services.
Call us at 206-320-7130 if you want help finding a physician certified in CyberKnife and/or Gamma Knife, or to schedule an appointment for a consultation.
About Swedish Cancer Institute
We care for people - we treat cancer
A commitment to fight cancer takes innovation, tenacity and an unwillingness to accept the status quo. For nearly eight decades the men and women of the Swedish Cancer Institute have been relentless pioneers in developing and acquiring the latest cancer-fighting technologies and therapies.
As the oldest and largest cancer-care center in the Pacific Northwest, the institute has earned a reputation for its progressive, personalized approach to cancer treatment. Our experts care for people with compassion, respect and understanding while aggressively treating their cancer with the most advanced equipment and techniques. That's the tradition of cancer care at the Swedish Cancer Institute.
Our integrated, multidisciplinary team includes surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, researchers, nurses, technologists and support staff. It also includes many health-care professionals with expertise in clinical programs and complementary cancer therapies, patient education and counseling. Most importantly, however, the patient - and his or her family - is always at the center of the team.
