I just performed an implant and have eight scheduled for today. The procedure took 20 minutes. The seed placement was outstanding. This simple procedure can be done quickly and efficiently. Current data for patients with low risk prostate cancer show this is an excellent treatment compared to radical surgery, even with robotic assistance. The only support for choosing more aggressive therapy or more elaborate radiation should be based on patient preference and not on scientific data which does not exist. Recent data from the Cleveland Clinic supports this as well.
