If you have been diagnosed with prostate cancer, you owe it to yourself to become fully informed about the disease and to know all your treatment options. The good news is there has been great medical progress in recent years and prostate cancer is now a highly treatable disease. With today's most sophisticated, non-invasive therapies, patients are being cured and preserving their quality of life without the unwanted side effects associated with radical surgery.
For most patients who are diagnosed early, the choice of treatment most often comes down to radiation versus radical surgery, either with or without some form of hormonal therapy. This book provides the latest medical data and explains why more men are now avoiding surgery and instead choosing state-of-the-art radiation therapy such as seed implants (brachytherapy) and 4D IG-IMRT (4 Dimensional Image-Guided Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy) with DART (Dynamic Adaptive Radiation Therapy) -- the revolutionary treatment breakthrough now being used to cure men previously considered incurable by surgery or any other means. In a special "Facts" chapter, the authors elaborate the pros and cons of all currently available treatment options.
Michael J. Dattoli, M.D. is an internationally renowned radiation oncologist and one of the pioneers in the field of brachytherapy. Dr. Dattoli has published many peer-reviewed studies and now boasts the most successful long term cure rate in the world, using the most sophisticated forms of radiation therapy (see Reports using the link above). Jennifer Cash, ARNP, OCN, is an Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner specializing in oncology. She is a noted author on subjects that include the most advanced radiation technologies, brachytherapy, and hormonal therapy.
