Cancer care continues to unfold as medical and technological advancements in diagnostic tools and treatments emerge. We are proud to be on the cutting-edge where we can help expertly guide our patients through their diagnosis with the compassionate care for which we are known.
While a diagnosis of prostate cancer was once met with certainty of invasive surgeries ahead and the potential for life-changing consequences, modern advancements have changed the way we approach cancer of the prostate. In fact, prostate seed implants is one of the most notable and effective courses of treatment available today; a fast, non-invasive method in which seeds are implanted directly into the prostate where they slowly release site-specific radiation for the determined course of treatment – whether it’s weeks or months. Prostate seed implants come with much fewer side effects and require less recovery time, putting patients back into their normal routine as quickly as possible. At our affiliated center at Choice Cancer Care / Las Colinas Cancer Center, patients are offered other options for treating prostate cancer including chemotherapy, hormone therapy, and radiation treatments such as intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) and image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT).
Dr. Gregory Echt, one of the nation’s leading radiation oncologists, established his first clinic in North Texas in 1989 to deliver world-class cancer treatment. This first clinic would set the tone for the clinics to come, establishing a philosophy of patient care that is now synonymous with how the treatment centers operate.
