Prostate cancer is a common problem, and Newcastle Urology is one of the leading tertiary centres in the country providing treatment for men with all stages of this disease. Brachytherapy is not performed at any other hospital in the region.
- Brachytherapy treatment for prostate cancer: This involves the insertion of radioactive seeds into the prostate gland with needles placed through the skin beneath the scrotum. This procedure may require a telescopic examination of the bladder as well.
- Robotic radical prostatectomy: A robotic prostatectomy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure for removing the prostate gland with the surgeon using the DaVinci robot to perform the operation.
