New prostate cancer treatment

Stereotactic Ablative Body Radiotherapy (SABRT), 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, SABRT is now a suitable treatment technic for prostate cancer patients. This treatment is only available at Genesis Care.

SABRT accurately targets cancer cells 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.

Pricing

Private health insurance is not required for radiation therapy treatments. 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.
