Accuray's history began when John R. Adler, MD, professor of neurosurgery and radiation oncology at Stanford University Medical Center, developed the CyberKnife® System in 1987 after completing a fellowship in Sweden with Lars Leksell, MD, the founder of radiosurgery. With the CyberKnife System, Adler’s vision was to develop a non-invasive robotic radiosurgery system with superior accuracy for treatment of tumors anywhere in the body. The revolutionary concept reached far beyond the practice of radiosurgery at the time, which restricted radiosurgery to the treatment of intracranial tumors. After his initial work developing the CyberKnife System, Adler together with a group from Stanford and a manufacturer of linac technology teamed up and founded Accuray, Inc. in 1990. FDA-cleared for the treatment of head, neck and upper spine tumors in 1999, the CyberKnife was the first and only radiosurgery system to combine image guidance and computer controlled robotics giving birth to the next generation in radiosurgery – intelligent robotic radiosurgery.
