The Southeast Georgia Health System is the only system to offer the CyberKnife M6 Series for cancer patients, which provides a more precise delivery of radiation for cancer treatments.

The robotic radiation delivery system uses real-time imaging to track and precisely target tumorous areas to reduce treatment inaccuracy and length of procedure.

At the Southeast Georgia Health System Cancer Care Center, located in Brunswick, Georgia, specialists will continue to use the CyberKnife to treat prostate, lung, brain and liver cancers, treating over 300 patients a year.
