A cancer diagnosis changes everything. But a prostate cancer diagnosis doesn't have to change certain things. Let the experts at First Dayton help you become a survivor – and continue living your life while you fight prostate cancer.
The possible side effects of prostate cancer treatment can be almost as frightening as the cancer itself. But at First Dayton CyberKnife®, Dr. Hughes and his team can help beat your prostate cancer without bowel difficulties, incontinence or erectile dysfunction.
That's because First Dayton fights your cancer with powerful radiation technology that doesn't involve any cutting, pain or long recovery times.
CyberKnife is Dr. Hughes' most powerful weapon in the fight against prostate cancer. CyberKnife is the only prostate treatment technology that tracks prostate movement and adjusts for it –– giving it unsurpassed precision and accuracy. With real-time imaging, we actually watch your prostate during treatment to minimize the chance of damaging surrounding tissue.
What this means for you is a drastically reduced chance of the incontinence and erectile dysfunction often associated with other types of treatment. And unlike treatment at ordinary cancer centers, you only need five treatments at First Dayton CyberKnife.
IMRT conforms to your tumor to treat more advanced stages of prostate cancer.
If your prostate is enlarged, HDR brachytherapy might be the best way to beat your cancer. Dr. Hughes is the most experienced physician in the region to perform this procedure, which uses robotic technology to implant high-intensity radiation seeds directly into the prostate. Unlike treatment at ordinary cancer centers, HDR brachytherapy at First Dayton uses temporary – not permanent – seeds. And, while you usually have to go to the hospital for this powerful treatment, First Dayton is the only center in Ohio to offer it in an office setting. HDR brachytherapy is often combined with IMRT to beat prostate cancer.
