Medical Director for the Chicago Prostate Cancer Center

Brachytherapy: An Innovative Disruptor

Dr. Moran stresses how important it is for clinicians to recognize the value of brachytherapy and promote it in order to carry it forward. Low-dose rate brachytherapy has been very threatening to other practice modalities in the past, yet it has endured through an environment in which it has only been promoted by the experts and community physicians who practice it.

Why Cesium

There are three different isotopes that can be used in brachytherapy: iodine-125, palladium-103, and Cesium-131. Here are Dr. Moran’s insights on why Cesium-131 is his preferred isotope for treatment of prostate cancer. Read the full story here.

Awareness in Action and Sky High Referral Rates

Dr. Moran recognizes the value of brachytherapy in the community and the awareness in action. Former patients have even a monthly support group meeting that Dr. Moran and his Director of Research and Education attend. He credits the baby boomer generation with this awareness in action. Whether it’s through social media or simply talking to a friend, patients are being introduced to brachytherapy through channels that weren’t available 10 years ago. Dr. Moran hopes to use these new channels to share patients’ stories and testimonials. Read the full story here.

Dr. Moran's Journey from Prostate Cancer Survivor to Brachytherapy Pioneer

Improving Personalization and Confidence in Prostate Cancer Treatment

Understanding the patient and the severity of their disease is critical when recommending the right treatment for them. The Chicago Prostate Cancer Center offers a perineal template guided biopsy that allows them to take their treatment customization a step further. This biopsy provides diagnostic data that enables physicians to categorize patients into smaller subsets along the disease spectrum, thereby identifying the most effective treatment plan possible for their individual disease.

Exploring the Many Advantages of the Prostate Brachytherapy Procedure Over Surgery

According to Dr. Sylvester, brachytherapy provides many advantages over surgery for prostate cancer treatment. This underscores the importance of prostate cancer patients becoming aware of brachytherapy as a treatment option. Some of the advantages over surgery that Sylvester mentions are higher cure rates and lower risks for incontinence in a shorter, outpatient procedure. Read the full story here
