Palo Alto, Calif.-based Stanford University Medical Center is expanding access to neurosurgery treatments by acquiring a second CyberKnife M6 system.

Designed by Accuray, CyberKnife is a robotic system that treats diseases and tumors in the brain and base of the skull through stereotactic radiosurgery.

The device delivers a high-dose radiation treatment to eradicate all tissue within a tumor.

Stanford treated its first patient with an early CyberKnife system 25 years ago. 

The new CyberKnife device will be installed at the Stanford Neuroscience Health Center.
