HDR Brachytherapy

What Is HDR Brachytherapy?

HDR brachytherapy is a powerful, internally delivered radiation modality that destroys many types of cancers. These include various skin cancers, cervical cancer, prostate cancer and breast cancer. HDR brachytherapy can be used either as a standalone treatment or to eliminate any remaining cancerous cells after a tumor has been surgically removed. By placing radioactive material “seeds” directly inside or next to the tumor, brachytherapy allows us to use a higher total dose of radiation to treat smaller areas in less time than is possible with external-beam radiation treatment. Brachytherapy is also called internal radiation therapy.



"I just wanted to thank everyone for their kind treatment. Everyone made me feel comfortable at all times. Each and every person I interacted with was so very nice. What a team!! When I'm enjoying another holiday season with my family, I'll be thinking of all angels that made it possible!"
