The only hospital in Westchester (and Manhattan) to offer the CyberKnife Robotic Radiosurgery System, a new radiation technology that treats cancer faster and with fewer side effects, is Animal Specialty Center, an animal hospital in Yonkers founded by veterinary neurologists Richard J. Joseph of Katonah and Jason M. Berg of Tarrytown. ASC is also the first and only veterinary facility in the world to have the $4 million CyberKnife.
“We’re breaking new ground,” Dr. Joseph says. Previous methods of radiation treatment for cancer might require as many as 15 to 20 visits, Dr. Berg says. “With CyberKnife, only one to three treatments are required.” For further information, visit animalspecialtycenter.com or call (914) 457-4000.
