Brachytherapy

Brachytherapy Bronx

Brachytherapy has been proven to be very effective and safe, providing a good alternative to surgical removal of the prostate, breast, and cervix, while reducing the risk of certain long-term side effects.

In the treatment of prostate cancer, the radioactive seeds are about the size of a grain of rice, and give off radiation that travels only a few millimeters to kill nearby cancer cells. With permanent implants (for example, prostate) the radioactivity of the seeds decays with time while the actual seeds permanently stay within the treatment area.

There are two different kinds of brachytherapy: permanent, when the seeds remain inside of the body, and temporary, when the seeds are inside of the body and then removed. Diseases treated with temporary implants include many gynecologic cancers.

Eastchester Center for Cancer Care offers the following services:
Chemotherapy
