WAUKESHA, WI--(Marketwire - September 15, 2008) - On October 8 at 12:00 p.m. CDT, ProHealth Care will present a panel discussion at Waukesha Memorial Hospital on CyberKnife®, one of the world's most sophisticated cancer treatment technologies. The panel will include Bobby Koneru, MD, radiation oncologist; Hendrikus Krouwer, MD, PhD, neuro-oncologist; and Kenneth Reichert, MD, neurosurgeon, and will be moderated by Michael McCrea, PhD, executive director of ProHealth Care's Neuroscience Center. The panel will discuss the case of a brain tumor patient treated with CyberKnife as well as the CyberKnife treatment process.

Kenneth W. Reichert, MD relates, "The CyberKnife Radiosurgery is a variation of treatment that allows a patient to have radiation focused to the tumor in hopes of eliminating the tumor and the growth of the tumor without necessarily causing the same side effects that the brain substance would have in normal radiation therapy."
