Brachytherapy for prostate cancer treatment in India.

Brachytherapy for prostate cancer.

Brachytherapy is a form of radiotherapy ( cancer treatment ) where radioactive elements are sealed inside a seed , capsule , pellet or wire and are put implanted inside the body of a cancer patient by using either a needle or a catheter. At CMCS Health , we are associated with Best Indian radiation oncologist , who are well experienced in brachytherapy for prostate cancer treatment in India.

Brachytherapy is universally accepted prostate cancer treatment worldwide. It is used as monotherapy for men with early stage prostate cancer and also for some intermediate risk prostate cancers and in combination with intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) for men with larger prostate cancers.

The advantage of brachytherapy in prostate cancer treatment is that radioactive material implant allows a higher dose of radiation given to limited area and thus minimizing the damage to surrounding healthy tissues.

In Brachytherapy for prostate cancer treatment in India , a radiation oncologist places the encapsulated radioactive substance directly on tumor or surrounding tissues with the help of a needle or catheter. The duration of radioactive implant in body of patient depends on location of cancer , stage of cancer and overall health of patient. CT Scans and Ultrasound during the brachytherapy helps the radiation oncologist in placing the encapsulated radioactive material precisely on tumor or nearby tissues.

Brachytherapy for prostate cancer are usually given as either low dose rate ( LDR ) brachytherapy or high dose rate ( HDR ) brachytherapy.

Brachytherapy for prostate cancer , if done by a well experienced radiation oncologist and after proper evaluation of the size and stage of tumor is found to be as effective as conventional external beam radiation therapy and in some cases even surgery .

Brachytherapy is very useful for those prostate cancer patient where the cancer is localized and has not metastasized. In some cases brachytherapy is combined with external-beam radiation therapy, including stereotactic body radiation therapy, to get the best results.

Other types of radiation therapy for prostate cancer treatment in India :

  • External beam radiation therapy ( EBRT )
  • Three-dimensional conformal radiation therapy ( 3D-CRT)
  • intensity modulated radiation therapy ( IMRT )
  • Image guided radiation therapy ( IGRT )
  • Volumetric modulated arc therapy ( VMAT )
  • Stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) also known as gamma knife or cyberKnife

 Dr A K Anand is leading radiation oncologist of Delhi and NCR and is currently HOD and Director - Dept. of Radiation Oncology at Fortis memorial research Institute , Gurgaon , India.

Dr A K Anand has a vast experience of more than  30 years in the field of radiation oncology.

Robotic prostatectomy for prostate cancer treatment- Dr. Prof. Anant Kumar.

Prostate cancer treatment in India | Robotic Prostatectomy.

Prostate cancer surgery is recommended for those patients where cancer is localized and has not metastasized. At CMCS Health, we are associated with the best Indian Uro-oncology surgeons for both laparoscopic prostate cancer surgery and Robotic prostatectomy for prostate cancer treatments in India.

da Vinci robotic prostatectomy for prostate cancer treatment in India has considerable advantages over conventional laparoscopic prostatectomy as it not only empowers the surgeon to overcome shortcomings associated with both open prostatectomy and laparoscopic prostatectomy but also offers better patient compliance. We are associated with the most experienced Uro-Oncology surgeons of India well versed in Robotic prostatectomy .

During a robot-assisted prostatectomy for prostate cancer treatment in India, a three-dimensional endoscope and equipment for high-resolution images and enhanced field of vision are used to provide a magnified view of delicate tissues and structures like blood vessels, nerves, and muscles surrounding the prostate gland. 

Advantage of robot-assisted prostatectomy in India :

As the incisions made during the da Vinci robotic prostatectomy are much smaller in size, they reduce the chances of any post-surgery infections, minimize the damage to surrounding tissues, and have lesser hospital stay for patients.

During the robotic prostatectomy the surgeon sits at a computer console and manipulates the tiny wristed instruments that offer greater mobility than the human wrist and thus offers a better precise surgery.

Which patients are best suited for robot assisted prostatectomy:

Prostate cancer patients whose prostate cancer is in T1 or T2 stage , that is the cancer is localized , are the ideal for robotic prostatectomy however your treating doctor will decide if robotic prostatectomy is best suited for you.

Treatment of prostate cancer is like the treatment of any other cancer. It involves all three fields of cancer treatments like Cancer Surgery, Medical oncology ( Chemotherapy, hormonal therapy, targeted or immunotherapy ), radiation therapy ( for brachytherapy, IMRT, IGRT, 3D CRT, VMAT, or SBRT) for complete and comprehensive prostate cancer treatment in India.
