Comprehensive, relevant and insightful conversations about health and medicine happen here… on MedStar Health Doc Talk.
CyberKnife®, also known as stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT), is non-surgical, highly precise, targeted radiation, with minimal damage to surrounding healthy tissue. Unlike conventional prostate radiation therapy that can take up to 40 sessions, CyberKnife treats prostate cancer in only five treatments. This treatment is extremely accurate and painless. This treatment causes minimal side effects and requires virtually no recovery time. Listen to Dr. Sean Collins, radiation oncologist and director, CyberKnife Prostate Program, MedStar Georgetown University Hospital, discuss the benefits of using CyberKnife to treat prostate cancer, how it compares to traditional radiation treatment, and why patients should choose MedStar Georgetown for their CyberKnife prostate cancer treatment. For interviews with Dr. Collins, or for more information about this podcast, contact Matt Holzapfel, firstname.lastname@example.org.
