This service offers both primary and salvage cryotherapy. Salvage cryotherapy is performed in the event that prostate cancer recurs following primary radiotherapy or brachytherapy. Mr Chinegwundoh is an accredited practitioner with over 7 years experience. His data on salvage cryotherapy was published in 2011. He is one of relatively few experts in the UK able to offer this therapy.
|Endocare's Cryocare system provides a prostate cancer treatment called Cryocare
(Targeted CryoAblation of the Prostate). Cryocare TCAP is a minimally-invasive procedure that uses ice to destroy prostate cancer.
The key elements of the FDA-cleared Cryocare CS system include the AutoFreeze, a computer-controlled automated freezing mechanism that utilizes optimal power settings based upon target endpoint temperatures and continual feedback from the thermocouple tips. Along with AutoFreeze, Cryocare CS includes new Integrated Ultrasound technology that provides internal visualization of the prostate gland and patented CryoGuide planning software that assists physicians in determining optimal treatment of the entire gland as well as targeting specific cancerous areas of the prostate. The Crycare CS also includes a new Urethral Warmer along with the highly successful vacuum-insulated Direct Access; Cryoprobes and CryoGrid, a brachytherapy-like grid fixed to the ultrasound stepper.
