What is brachytherapy: In the early stages of prostate cancer (T1N0M0,
T2N0M0) brachytherapy is considered to be a highly progressive and
successful method of treatment. Prostate brachytherapy is a form of
radiation therapy that has been used successfully to treat early-stage
prostate cancer. Using this method, radioactive granules are
introduced into the prostate gland – in direct contact with cancer
tissue, which kill cancer cells through radiation. However, it is
noteworthy that in this process there is practically no damage to the
healthy tissue cells of nearby organs. Brachytherapy treatment at
Medula Clinic: Medulla Clinic successfully treats early forms of early
forms of prostate cancer (stage T1, T2; PSA less than 20 ng / ml;
Glison total less than 7) using ultra-modern, less invasive
brachytherapy . Brachytherapy treatment in the early stages of
prostate cancer allows complete cure of this disease. In fact,
achieving the desired result is possible without further complicatio
ns of treatment. Basically, brachytherapy is performed without general
anesthesia using spinal anesthesia, which significantly reduces the
period of post-treatment rehabilitation. Brachytherapy treatment
allows the patient to maintain the prostate gland. The advantages of
this method are: organ (prostate) maintenance, less trauma, minimum
hospitalization time and rapid rehabilitation. The patient only spends
one or two days in the clinic. Brachytherapy is a fast and quite
effective method of treatment. The post-treatment rehabilitation
process is very short. Based on the above, the patient can return to
normal work in a few days. After the treatment procedure, the patients
are monitored by the specialists of our clinic. Advantages of
brachytherapy over surgical methods: Brachytherapy is an organ-sparing
treatment. Prostate cancer treatment is performed without excision of
the present gland. Brachytherapy treats less operative trauma and
complications in the postoperative period, mini
mizing the risk of bleeding. Therapeutic brachytherapy is performed
using peridural analgesia, which provides an extremely short period of
postoperative rehabilitation. The patient can return to daily
activities the day after surgery. Urinary incontinence is practically
not found in the post-treatment brachytherapy period.
