Date:2/9/2009

For one week in January Radiotherapy Clinics of Georgia (rcog.com) and NewsTalk 750 WSB teamed up to promote prostate cancer educational outreach.

Atlanta is the home of RCOG, the only source for the ProstRcision cancer treatment procedure. ProstRcision (prostrcision.com) has the highest documented prostate cancer cure rate in the world.
