Permanent prostate brachytherapy is performed as outpatient surgery at Mayo Clinic Hospital on the Phoenix campus. People who undergo this procedure often return to normal activity the next day. Mayo Clinic doctors have treated more than 1,000 people with seed implantation for prostate cancer at Mayo Clinic in Arizona since the mid-1990s.
Mayo Clinic emphasizes a collaborative approach to care. Permanent prostate brachytherapy treatment involves specialists from radiation oncology, urology, diagnostic radiology and anesthesiology. The radiation oncology team for prostate seed implants includes a doctor, specialist in measuring the dosage of radiation (dosimetrist) and medical physicist.
