Charité CyberKnife Center

The CyberKnife, an image-guided robot that allows targeted tumor radiation, is one of the most modern oncological technologies. The combination of image guidance and a robot-guided linear accelerator guarantees highest precision in radiosurgery. Patient and tumor movements alike are detected in real-time and the beam – the “knife” – is corrected accordingly.

An interdisciplinary tumor board assesses each patient and decides whether the CyberKnife is a suitable option. If patient and clinical experts opt for the CyberKnife the procedure is planned on the basis of CT scans. Depending on the size and complexity of the tumor, the entirely painless CyberKnife intervention takes 30 to 90 minutes. The patient can leave the Center on the same day.

The Charité CyberKnife Center is located at Campus Virchow-Klinikum and is headed jointly by Professor Dr. Volker Budach, Department of Radiation Oncology and Radiotherapy, and Professor Dr. Peter Vajkoczy (Department of Neurosurgery). Their team includes radiation therapists, neurosurgeons and medicals physicists. Dr. Markus Kulfeld, Head of Administration at the Center, had gained more than three years experience at Germany’s first CyberKnife Center in Munich before joining Charité.
