Patient Forum

The CyberKnife Patient Forum is designed to provide a place for people who have been diagnosed with cancer, their family and friends, to exchange useful information and provide support to one another. The Forum may also help people find answers to questions they have about the CyberKnife treatment experience. Accuray strives to facilitate these exchanges and encourage discussions. Recently we have experienced some aggressive or inappropriate spam postings. We are diligently working to resolve this issue and thank you in advance for your patience.

Can someone help with my appeal? What do I need to include? I'm really struggling with why the insurer considers this treatment experimental/investigational! My doctor insists that this treatment will help shrink the tumor, which is right near the main artery. I really don't want to go through repeated IMRT or other radiation, especially if this is what my doctor wants for me. Thank you in advance!
