World’s most expensive technology’s second unit (Cyber-knife for the treatment of Cancer) has been successfully installed at Jinnah hospital Karachi.

JPMC is the only hospital in Pakistan which is running a state-of-the-art Cyber-knife Robotic System since 2013 and the only hospital in the world that is not charging a single penny from patients for the Robotic Radiosurgery for the elimination of brain tumors and treatment of cancerous and non-cancerous tumours anywhere in the body, including the prostate, lung, brain, spine, head and neck, liver, pancreas and kidney, where radiation is indicated.

There are only 350 Cyber-knife Robotic surgery machines in the world. This new unit has been purchased for 60 crores. Sindh government has already started this in 2012 by installing its first ever unit at Jinnah hospital. Cyber-knife technology treatment is only available in Sindh. More than 8 thousand people has been given treatment free of cost by Jinnah post graduate medical center.

It costs almost 90 to 1 lac dollars for the treatment of cancer through Cyber-knife technology in the countries having this technology, but here in Sindh there is no any treatment fee. It is totally free and more than that people from different countries and cities are taking treatment here in Sindh for free of cost.
