GammaWest Brachytherapy Company Profile

05:18 EST 19th January 2019 | BioPortfolio

Brachytherapy is an advanced cancer treatment. The word "brachy" is Greek for "close by" and refers to placing radioactive seeds or sources directly in the tumor. This procedure gives physicians and patients the important advantage of applying a higher dose of radiation directly to the tumor while sparing healthy tissue and surrounding organs. Brachytherapy is a localized, precise, radiation treatment and is a very powerful anti-cancer tool. GammaWest Brachytherapy is the first clinic in the Intermountain West to specialize in Brachytherapy only, and is among the first of its kind in the nation. We are nationally recognized centers of excellence for Brachytherapy procedures and our physicians perform hundreds of these procedures each year. This focus and specialization in Brachytherapy equates to precise, high quality radiation implants for our patients. We specialize in the treatment of prostate cancer using both High-Dose Rate (HDR) Temporary and Low-Dose Rate (LDR) Permanent radioactive seed implants.
