For four years, Dr. John Sinclair, a neurosurgeon at The Ottawa Hospital, has been singing the praises of the CyberKnife. The device uses targeted radiation to destroy tumours anywhere in the body, reaching places a scalpel cannot....
Sinclair always hoped he could help bring CyberKnife to Ottawa. “It’s a huge part of the reason why I came back. If someone told me, you’re going to go back but you’re not going to do radiosurgery, I would have thought long and hard about returning.”
The next weeks are crucial as The Ottawa Hospital looks for donors. The Ottawa Hospital Foundation is raising money. An order for the machine must be placed. Sinclair is confident it will all come together.
He hopes to be able to have a CyberKnife operating at The Ottawa Hospital by May.
