Prostate Seed Implants
Category: Urologic Health
Prostate seed implantation--also called brachytherapy--has become more and more popular in recent years as a treatment option for prostate cancer, and New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani's decision to undergo the procedure has put it in the spotlight. Less invasive than surgery--but potentially just as effective--seed implantaion involves the insertion of radioactive seeds directly into the prostate, concentrating radiation in the cancerous area and minimizing exposure in other parts of the body.

On this webcast, join us in the operating room with urologist Robert Salant, MD and radiation oncologist Daniel Shasha, MD as they perform a brachytherapy on a 57-year-old man. Highlights will include:

  • a discussion with the patient about his choice of treatment
  • an ultrasound view of the prostate
  • needle insertion of the seeds
  • an x-ray view of the implanted seeds
  • commentary by Dr. Salant and Dr. Shasha before, during, and after the procedure

Not to be confused with a penile enlargement, the penile pump is a completely internal mechanism which allows a man to have a full erection at any time -- without planning ahead, as is necessary with other treatments.
