BIDMC Treats 1,000th CyberKnife Patient
Experience matters to Frank Cleary. Diagnosed first with melanoma and then brain tumors, the retired Boston attorney turned to the Cancer Center at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.
His treatment would include a new type of therapy -- a targeted way to apply cancer-fighting radiation called the CyberKnife Sterotactic Radiosurgery system. Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center was the first in New England to offer the leading-edge therapy.
Recently, he became the 1,000th patient to undergo treatment at BIDMC's Keith C. Field CyberKnife Center.
Today, Cleary is feeling well. "I've been able to continue my daily routine," he says. "I'm very thankful."
