Preparing for CyberKnife Treatment for Prostate Cancer

The treatment process at Austin CyberKnife is focused on the patient as we aim to provide the best experience possible. If you are preparing for CyberKnife® treatment for prostate cancer, here are a few steps to take to ensure you are completely comfortable before treatment begins.

  • Ask questions – As your physician talks through the procedure, be sure to ask any questions you or a loved one may have. Our goal is for you and your family to feel completely educated about CyberKnife to ease any concerns you may have.
  • Dress comfortably – During treatment, you’ll be asked to lie on a treatment table. For this reason, patients should wear comfortable clothing during treatment.
  • Relax – This is a painless procedure with no sedation required. Some patients even take naps during treatment. If you’d like to, create a playlist with your favorite music for the day of treatment and we can play it for you.
  • Plan the rest of your day – A key benefit of CyberKnife treatment is that sessions typically only last 30-90 minutes, and with little to no recovery time, you’re free to plan the rest of your day or go right back to your normal routine.

If you have any further questions about your upcoming treatment, please contact us at 512-324-8060.
