Gamma West Cancer Services is one of the largest brachytherapy clinics in the United States. Brachytherapy is a type of internal radiation that is used to treat prostate, breast and other cancers. Slim plastic applicators are placed into or near the tumor or tissue. A tiny radiation source is placed inside the applicator later to deliver the treatment. The radiation kills off the bad tissue while preserving as much healthy tissue as possible.
This is a highly specialized procedure where experience is critical. We have oncologists who have performed thousands of these procedures.
