Cryo (freezing) Prostate Cancer

Prostate cancer is extremely common, and many men are unsatisfied choosing between radiation and surgery. Surgical removal of the prostate is a major operation, and may result in impotence, urinary leakage, scar tissue, and other serious complications. Radiation therapy (external beam or radioactive seed implant) is less invasive; however, radiation may result in severe irritation of the bladder and rectum. Also, recent studies indicate that men who have received radiation for prostate cancer have a higher chance of developing rectal and bladder cancer in later years.

In order to offer men more choices, Dr. Garber has received special training and developed a subspecialty interest in prostate Cryo (freezing). Cryo is indicated for men with prostate cancer that is confined to the prostate. Cryo is also considered to be a treatment of choice for men with prostate cancer who have received radiation therapy (external beam or seed implant), and who develop recurrent cancer confined to the prostate.
