Knife-Less Surgery

New Tumor Surgery Replaces Blade with Beams

The Steeplechase Cancer Center at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital Somerset is one of the only facilities in the Northeast - and only one of a handful in the country - to offer this state-of-the-art technology that provides the most precise and fastest radiation therapy to target and destroy tumors.

The center offers Knife-Less Surgery with the Novalis Tx. This technology uses radiation beams instead of surgical blades to treat tumors such as brain, spine, lung, liver and prostate.>

Performed on an outpatient basis, the procedure is painless and in most cases lasts just minutes, getting patients quickly back to their daily routines.
