Augmenix SpaceOar™ Gel for Prostate Patients

What It Does: Creates space between the prostate and the rectum, significantly reducing side effects during treatment.

What It Is: The SpaceOARTM System is a revolutionary new technology that utilizes a biocompatible gel to create space between the prostate and rectum. This greatly reduces radiation dose (by 75%) to the rectum during prostate radiation therapy for prostate cancer, and reduces rectal side effects by more than 70% compared to standard radiation treatments. Placement of the gel takes just a few minutes and lasts approximately 6 months before it is reabsorbed by the body. Our own Dr. Hsi served as a prinicipal investigator for the national clinical trial involving over 220 men studying the SpaceOARTM System and is an author on the scientific paper reporting the results of this trial.
