What is Stereotactic Ablative Radiation Therapy?

Stereotactic Ablative Radiation Therapy (SABR), is a non-surgical treatment traditionally used to treat lung, spine, liver and bone tumours, and tumours in individual lymph nodes. Due to advances in technology, SABR can now treat suitable prostate cancer patients. This treatment is only available at GenesisCare.

SABR accurately targets cancer cells with high doses of radiation therapy. The radiation therapy is typically delivered in five treatments with fewer side effects.1,2 SABR helps men get the treatment they need with minimal disruption to their lives.

Individual treatment varies and some men may require other forms of radiation treatment such as External Beam Radiation Therapy or brachytherapy. Your doctor will discuss your options with you.

Private health insurance is not required for radiation therapy treatments.
