SpaceOAR Used In Prostate Cancer Treatment

The Cancer Center of South Tampa, Premier Radiation Oncology and Florida Urology Partners have added the use of SpaceOAR (Augmenix, Boston Scientific) in the treatment of localized prostate cancer with radiation therapy, in an effort to protect quality of life and minimize side effects. With prostate cancer, 90 percent of cases at initial diagnosis are likely to be localized, meaning it has not spread to other organs.

“We are very excited about this procedure and believe it’s a game changer for our radiation patients,” said Dr. Janelle Park, radiation oncologist at Premier Radiation Oncology. “This will allow us to really help our patients have a much lower side effect profile both during and after radiation therapy treatment.”

Dr. Alexander Engelman, radiation oncologist at Premier and Cancer Center of South Tampa, also noted, “Interestingly enough, there was also noted at three year follow up to have a statistically significant decrease in urinary as well as sexual side effects. Any reduction we can give our patients in long term side effects from radiation is a plus.”

Dr. Malcolm Root, urologist with Florida Urology Partners, said the procedure takes approximately 15-20 minutes.

Visit, or call Cancer Center of South Tampa, 601 S. Armenia Ave. in Tampa, at 353-8803 and Premier Radiation Oncology, 3140 S. Falkenburg Rd., Ste. 104 in Riverview, at 734-8911.
