Carolinas HealthCare System NorthEast, a facility of Carolinas HealthCare System NorthEast is proud to be the second hospital in the state of North Carolina and the only one in the region to provide CyberKnife® treatment for cancer patients. Since moving into our new building, The Pavilion, in May 2007, our Batte Cancer Center has provided state-of-the-art facilities, advances in technology, and highly-trained physicians while still bringing you the compassionate care that you have come to expect from Carolinas HealthCare System NorthEast.
The CyberKnife® Robotic Radiosurgery System, pioneered at Stanford University, is the first radiosurgery system designed to treat tumors anywhere in the body with sub-millimeter accuracy. Because of its extreme precision, the CyberKnife® System can continuously track, detect and correct for tumor and patient movement throughout the treatment.
