Syed Implants: High Dose, Targeted Radiation to Treat GYN Cancers
Our gyn cancer treatment team also uses innovative radiation therapies to target gynecologic cancer cells, while sparing healthy tissues and organs.
One such therapy is robotic Syed implants, a procedure that is performed by a gyn oncologist working with a radiation oncologist.
How the Procedure is Performed
Using tiny instruments and a camera inserted into the abdomen through keyhole incisions, the gyn-oncologist inserts a temporary mesh sling into the abdomen and lifts the organs and tissue that do not need to be radiated.
A radiation oncologist then carefully inserts catheters through which tiny radiation seeds are positioned near the tumor. The seeds deliver high doses of radiation to the tumor, while minimizing exposure to healthy tissue.
