Prostate Seed Implants

Brachytherapy

We have been doing prostate seed implants for years. Our staff members have performed over 3000 of these procedures. Unlike other facilities, we individualize each patients treatment. We believe everyone’s cancer is unique.

We combine patients preferences with the popular Seattle approach for determining the most appropriate method of treatment. Please refer to our Position Statement on Prostate Cancer for more information.
