Lyle's Story

As a livestock auction owner, Lyle’s work days are long and hard. So, when he learned he had a tumor at the base of his skull, he was ready for a long, hard fight. Instead, he found himself back at work in a week.

His team — which included a neurosurgeon, neurologist and radiation oncologist — designed a treatment plan specifically for Lyle that included the non-invasive CyberKnife system. Delivering pinpoint-accurate radiation, it eliminated the tumor in just five days, without slowing Lyle down one bit.

“When you have an incident like that you just look back and you’re thankful for all of the people in healthcare that did their job so well. I feel like a very fortunate and lucky man.”
