New prostate cancer treatment
Stereotactic Ablative Body Radiotherapy (SABR) is traditionally used to treat lung, liver, soft tissue, spine, and bone as well as tumours in individual lymph nodes. Due to rapid technological advances within our centres, SABR is now a suitable treatment technic for prostate cancer patients. This treatment is only available at Genesis Care.
SABRT accurately targets cancer with high doses of radiation, while minimising exposure to surrounding non-cancerous tissues. The result is same efficacy but less side effects. The full radiation dose is typically completed in only 5 treatment days. The short treatment course means minimum disruption to your lifestyle.
Your initial consult with our doctors carries no out of pocket expense. Medicare reimburses between 80 and 90% of the cost of treatment and we have payment plans to suit all incomes. Click here for more information. Private health insurance is not required for radiation therapy treatments.
