Cryosurgery is becoming specialized procedure not performed very often in the U.S. This link, more global in scope, may have the answers you are looking for..This is a big web-site with some very useful features for sorting information..

As for Cyberknife, that's a newer form of high-intensity radiation treatment and there may guys on this board with some answers..

There is a piece on the Yana site at CYBERKNIFE and there are three of the 950+ men who have told their stories about their experiences with PCa who chose Cyberknife. Go to this RADIATION INDEX and page down looking in the Treatment column.

There is also some basic information here about CRYOTHERAPY and the relevant CRYOTHERAPY INDEX

Hope this helps

I've had cryosurgery which was used in my Targeted Focal Therapy. Other than a little soreness for a few weeks afterward it has been great. Nowhere near as invasive as surgery and no post radiation problems. In fact I'm surprised it's not used more for radical treatments. It still allows for SRT if needed for one thing.

Cyberknife I only know of through their TV ads.
