SpaceOAR® Hydrogel for Men Undergoing Radiation for Prostate Cancer

Greater Boston Urology is now offering SpaceOAR, an effective system for men who choose radiation therapy to treat their prostate cancer.

SpaceOAR hydrogel acts as a protective spacer between the prostate and the rectum and has been clinically proven to reduce the risk of side effects (such as bowel toxicity, urinary incontinence, and erectile dysfunction) during and after radiation treatment.

Below is a video that explains how SpaceOAR works.

Currently, GBU physicians Dr. James Fitzgerald and Dr. Stephen Craig Gillard are trained in the SpaceOAR system. Click here to schedule an appointment.
