Prostate Seed Implantation
In collaboration with BMC’s Department of Urology, we offer implants of radioactive seeds to patients with prostate cancer. This outpatient procedure takes place in a single day, as opposed to eight weeks for external radiation (3D conformal therapy). Patients can usually resume most normal activity within a few days after the procedure. The seeds stay in place permanently, but do not require any long-term changes in lifestyle. For some patients, this treatment is an attractive alternative to external radiation.
