This is Dr. David

I am a radiation oncology doctor.

we can't set up an appointment to see patients.

but we can answer medical questions.

and I can offer a phone consult service to discuss and answer questions by phone.

I don't do seeds for brachytherapy either, but I have experience in doing the procedure.

there are different types of external beam radiation, conventional IMRT for 7 weeks

or SRS stereotatic radiosurgery of every other day focused radiation to the prostate for 5 treatments.

there is not one treatment which is better than the others for cure.

but radiation is better than surgery to cause less side effects of urination and erectile problems.

let me know if you have other questions.

Thanks for the information - this is just second opinion. This is what my Doctor here had told me but my friends talked about the seeds.
