Prostate Brachytherapy: The Unsung Hero

http://www.darlingtonandstocktontimes.co.uk/news/11600947.Pub_landlord_is_3_000th_patient_to_have__unsung__op/

Apparently the United Kingdom is similar to the US in having Prostate Brachytherapy underutilized in the fight against prostate cancer. In this article from the Darlington& Stockton times in England prostate brachytherapy is characterized as the” unsung hero” among prostate cancer treatments and we have to wholeheartedly agree. Although Brachytherapy has a cure rate equal or better than surgery, urologists (surgeons) many times do not present it as an option to their patients although it can put them back to work the next day, save them from side effects of incontinence and impotence and save the insurance company or the patient thousands of dollars in costs.
