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.
Brachytherapy for prostate cancer is a highly specialized procedure where experience is critical. We have oncologists who have performed thousands of these procedures.
