We have talked with many patients and their families who have found themselves recently diagnosed with prostate cancer who are trying to find the best course of treatment that is right for them. We can help you understand what it means to have been diagnosed with prostate cancer and can discuss your cancer treatment options.
Life changing as it may be, a diagnosis of prostate cancer can very often result in full remission. As almost 90% of the cases where prostate cancer is detected, while it remains localized, the cure rate is quite high. In fact, according to the American Cancer Society, when prostrate cancer is treated in these early, localized stages, nearly 100% of prostate cancer patients can expect to be disease-free after five years.
Still, prostate cancer continues to be the most common form of cancer in men; and, in response, the Prostate Seed Institute provides comprehensive, expert treatment such as High Dose Radiation Therapy (HDR), External Beam Radiation Therapy (IMRT and IGRT), and – one of the most promising, least invasive forms of treatment, Prostate Seed Implantation (Brachytherapy). Additionally, the Prostate Seed Institute also provides the option of Combination Therapy.
Throughout his more than 20 years in medical practice, Dr. Echt has treated more than 4,000 prostate cancer patients with prostate seed implantation therapy. This form of treatment is among the fastest growing treatment options and continues to be Dr. Echt’s preferred method of non-surgical prostate cancer treatment – offering a virtually painless, fast procedure with a quicker recovery and reduced side-effects.
Ultimately, the focus at the Prostate Seed Institute is on providing superior patient care. Our expert team of medical professionals guides our patients through the process of diagnosis, testing, and recovery – from helping educate patients on the nuances of their disease to helping them choose the treatment with which they are most comfortable and will have the greatest opportunity for success with the least side-effects.
