Ground Breaking Treatment in Your Backyard

UUANJ recently started offering the state of the art SpaceOAR® treatment for patients with prostate cancer. This can be used with all radiation therapy modalities and is done through a temporary injectable gel that provides protection to the rectum of men who are undergoing radiation therapy for the treatment of prostate cancer. SpaceOAR® is a revolution in the treatment of prostate cancer and the first and only prostate cancer spacing device to have received clearance from Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Currently there are no other rectum-sparing hydrogels available in the U.S or abroad.

At UUANJ, we place the SpaceOAR System in patients prior to radiation therapy through a minimally invasive, outpatient procedure. Our urologists inject the SpaceOAR hydrogel through a small needle into the space between the prostate and rectum, while the patient is under local or general anesthesia. Using state of the art ultrasound imaging, our specialists can carefully place the hydrogel in the proper location. Using the SpaceOAR hydrogel, our urologists can treat the prostate with much less chance of rectum radiation injury and fewer complications. The gel is made to remain in place for about three months, during the time radiation treatment is taking place, and then automatically liquefies, is absorbed and eliminated from the body through the patient’s urine.

“The use of SpaceOAR allows the specialists to maximize radiation to the tumor while minimizing radiation to surrounding normal tissue. The use of SpaceOAR System allows us to treat the cancer much more precisely but also helps patients to maintain their normal activities and lifestyle after treatment,” says Dr. Gazi
