      Impact on Patient Care
      According to Dr. Robert Sinha, director of Radiation Oncology for El Camino Hospital, "The launch of mesh brachytherapy treatment further enhances our hospital's ability to treat all lung cancer patients, regardless of their stage. Brachytherapy is a terrific tool that complements our existing services, which include all advanced forms of radiation therapy, such as the CyberKnife system. When it comes to state-of-the-art lung-cancer treatment, we now have all surgical, chemotherapy and target radiation options available for our patients."

      Adds Dr. Khuntia, "Mesh brachytherapy can dramatically reduce the recurrence rate for early-stage lung-cancer patients. In John's case, with surgery alone, there would have been about a 20 percent chance that his cancer would come back locally. With brachytherapy, recurrence is just one percent. That's a significant difference."

      By choosing brachytherapy treatment, John was also able to return home a day after his surgery and will be able to avoid the five-to-six-week process of daily treatments, as would have been required with conventional radiation therapy.

      Brachytherapy treatment is only available to early-stage lung-cancer patients who meet the current treatment guidelines. To find out more about the treatment, contact the El Camino Hospital Center for Advanced Radiotherapy and CyberKnife Radiosurgery at 650-940-7280.
