Brachytherapy

Brachytherapy is a type of radiation that uses radiation to treat different types of cancer. High dose radiation or low dose radiation may be used depending on the type of cancer and diagnosis. This non-surgical and non-invasive treatment is specific to each patient’s needs. During the procedure, a radioactive seed is placed in a special plastic applicator, which is then laid over the treatment area for five to 10 minutes.

The following cancers we treat with Brachytherapy:

  • Gynecological cancers 
  • Breast cancer 
  • Head and Neck cancers 
  • Bronchus or airway cancer 
  • Skin cancer
