Thank you for visiting our homepage. We have opened a specialized department for brachytherapy for prostate cancer at SUMS, which is the first department specific for Brachytherapy for Prostate cancer in the world. This was done in the hope to establish and spread the use of brachytherapy as prostate cancer treatment without recurrence, which must be a strong desire from both the patients and their families.

Having a long experience of doing high quality brachytherapy for prostate cancer, we think that your prostate cancer should be cured nearly 100% as long as you don't have metastatic disease.

In our practice, we are aiming for the spread of quality brachytherapy and we offer education, research, and enlightened actions, according to our motto, "Always do the best practice for the patients and their families."

It is our hope that this homepage will be of great help for those patients who have been diagnosed with prostate cancer and hope for brachytherapy. Also, we hope it is useful for doctors and medical teams who want to study this treatment.
