I am new here.
I wish i had done a better job on the net earlier but happy to have found this site now. I was diagnosed with prostate cancer May 2021. Intermediate, Gleason 3+3, 3+4, PSA up and down between 5.7 and 9. Most recent 6.7. Urologist's is known for his skills with DaVinci, removing the prostate. He recommended radiation treatment for me. In the course of my due diligence, I have met with doctors at UCLA, The Mayo Clinic, a "CyberKnife" group, and other consulting urologists regarding treatments other than radiation modalities. The radiation treatment options all required many months of hormone treatment because of the size of my prostate, 130cc.
I have read numerous studies, independent and advocacy papers, watched industry presentations by various groups on the net, etc./ In the course of this I cam across a group in Palm Desert. I read their material, tracked down some studies, etc. I had consultations with their team. Very Impressive many ways. I am seriously considering going this route and I recommend others check it out. The Group is HALOdx. They have a Houston Office.
In the second half of a 20 year trial, this treatment is not covered by Insurance. However, if it is as good an option as it seems, it would be worth it. The reported results are excellent, compararable to radiation in kiiling the cancer cells with a much much lower rate of the kinds of side effects possible using radiation.
I am reaching out to see if anyone has considered or participated in this trial.
Thank you vey much,
