What is Brachytherapy?

Brachytherapy is an advanced and effective treatment for management of prostate cancer.
This form of radiation therapy involves the placement of tiny radioactive seeds directly into the prostate gland.  The seeds emit a low level of radiation, gradually decaying over several months, and remaining permanently in place.

Brachytherapy seed implantation is an excellent treatment option for localized prostate cancer offering a targeted minimally invasive approach, with manageable side effects and favourable recovery time.
