Prostate Seed Brachytherapy

Prostate Seed Brachytherapy is a prostate cancer treatment option that is a one-time, minimally invasive procedure usually performed in an outpatient setting. The procedure involves the placement of tiny seeds that contain a radioactive isotope inside the prostate via the guidance of ultrasonic equipment. Patients are given local or general anesthesia to block pain and help with relaxation. On average the treatment takes just under one hour from start to finish. Data shows shorter recovery time, fewer long-term complications and excellent long-term survival rates.
