About the hospital

European Radiosurgery Centre Munich is one of the world’s leading centres for radiosurgery. It was the first CyberKnife centre in Germany when it opened in cooperation with the University Clinic Munich (LMU) and the AOK Bavaria on July 1, 2005. The Centre is located in the Hadern district in Munich, close to the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich and the University Clinic. Medical services are provided following the worldwide Radiosurgery Society quality standards.

The more-than-20-year-old medical experience of the Centre is based on more than 10,000 courses of a treatment since 2005. Overall more than 11,000 patients have been treated in the Centre since 1994. The staff consists of 21 experts, including 3 leading physicians and a team of medical physicists.

Since 2013 the Center has been using the latest generation of CyberKnife technology (CyberKnife M6). In addition, the newest InCise 2 Multileaf Collimator is in operation for the first time, allowing a more comprehensive range of tumours to be treated and patients benefiting from even shorter treatment times. Additionally, the Center offers ZAP-X technology, the next step in non-invasive brain tumour treatment. Around 200 publications and articles by the hospital physicians document data, among others, on the Precision, Efficacy, Reliability, and Patient Comfort of CyberKnife Tumor Treatment. In addition to the close and formal cooperation with the University of Munich (LMU), the hospital works with Stanford University in California, USA, where Professor John A. Adler invented the Cyberknife.

The Centre is formed by the Department of adult and pediatric radiosurgery. Radiosurgery (stereotactic radiosurgery) is a method of radiotherapy with exact targeting, mainly used in cancer treatment. Treatment includes the latest CyberKnife radiosurgery, GammaKnife and even more advanced ZAP-X technology for brain tumours.

In what diseases can Cyberknife be effective?

As a rule, tumours in all body parts can be treated with CyberKnife. However, the latest medical technology makes it possible to treat even very irregularly shaped tumours in critical areas of the brain, such as the optic or auditory nerve, without damaging these sensitive brain areas.

Can I have ZAP-X therapy at European Radiosurgery Centre in Munich?

ZAP-X is one of the therapy options at the European Radiosurgery Center Munich and is an outpatient alternative or addition to classical surgery or conventional radiation. ZAP-X can target submillimeter tumours such as acoustic neuromas, meningiomas, or brain metastases.

What does the Cyberknife radiosurgery course include?

The course of treatment includes the first interview, imaging, treatment planning, actual precision irradiation, and scheduled check-ups. The innovative CyberKnife technology makes it possible to treat the tumour on an outpatient basis, which makes it much more comfortable for patients.
