Dennis R. Hill, MD to Speak at the American Cancer Society Man-to-Man Support Group to Discuss HDR Brachytherapy for Prostate Cancer Treatment
Date:8/30/2013

Oakland, CA (PRWEB) August 30, 2013

Dennis R. Hill, MD has confirmed today that he will be speaking to the American Cancer Society Man-to-Man support group on High Dose Rate Brachytherapy Tuesday, September 24, from 6:30 to 8:00pm at the Summit Campus of Alta Bates Summit Medical Center in Oakland, CA.

The Man to Man program helps men cope with prostate cancer by offering community-based education and support for patients and their family members. Part of this volunteer organization is outreach and collaboration with health care professionals. Dr. Hill has volunteered to speak for the second time in three years. His previous High Dose Rate Brachytherapy presentation was "a big hit" according to William H. Spurgeon the facilitator of the group. He also said, "We appreciate (Dr. Hill’s) time and energies to help educate our men."

Dr. Hill explains that High Dose Rate Brachytherapy is an advanced form of treatment for prostate cancer which treats the prostate with radiation from the inside out with temporary implanted catheters. It is less rigorous than surgery, less time consuming than external beam radiation, and more precise than permanent seed implant. The success rate is the same as surgery, external beam radiation and permanent seeds and there are fewer side effects according to Dr. Hill.

Dr. Hill has been doing High Dose Rate Brachytherapy exclusively since 2004. He has done over five hundred High Dose Rate Prostate Brachytherapy implants and has published scholarly articles on the subject.

His office is located at: Dennis R. Hill MD 3012 Summit Street Suite 2675 Oakland, CA 94609 510-869-8875 drh(at)dennisrhillmd(dot)com and his website is hdrprostatebrachytherapy.com, which includes a quiz to determine if a patient is a candidate for HDR Prostate Brachytherapy.
