Professor of Orthopedic Surgery Dept. My spinal stenosis and disk came with neural tube stenosis and I could not walk, but it got much better. I was able to see the x-ray every day and tell me about the treatment. I hear all the symptoms, and the advice and paperwork are impressive. Even if I have been to many hospitals because of my parents, it is the first time my doctors tell me for 15 to 20 minutes every day. So I seem to be a person. Thank you professors and teachers.

What you need to know about Brachytherapy in South Korea

Brachytherapy Procedure

Brachytherapy sometimes referred to as internal radiation, is a type of radiation therapy to treat cancer that involves placing a sealed radiation source inside or near the tumor. The procedure allows oncologists to deliver higher doses of radiation to specific areas of the body when compared to conventional radiation therapy. It is usually used to treat cancers of the head and neck as well as the breast, lung, esophagus, prostate, cervix, and eye. 

What does a Brachytherapy Procedure Involve?

During the procedure, you will be given general anesthesia or sedation to reduce discomfort and help you remain still. There are two types of brachytherapy: placement inside a body cavity (intracavity) and placement in body tissue (interstitial). With intracavity brachytherapy, a device that contains radioactive material is placed in a body opening, such as the vagina or the windpipe, while with interstitial brachytherapy; the device is put into body tissue such as inside the prostate or the breast. The device is mainly temporary, but in some cases, it may be placed in your body permanently.

How Long Should I Stay in South Korea for a Brachytherapy Procedure?

With temporary brachytherapy, you may need to stay in the hospital for a few days as the device will need to stay in place for up to 24 hours. With permanent brachytherapy, you can leave the hospital on the same day or the next day after the procedure. In general, you should plan to stay in South Korea for a week. 

MyMediTravel currently lists 15 facilities in South Korea offering Brachytherapy procedures - see above for the complete list, along with estimated prices. The price of a Brachytherapy can vary according to each individual’s case and will be determined based on your medical profile and an in-person assessment with the specialist.

What's the Recovery Time for Brachytherapy Procedures in South Korea?

Recovery for brachytherapy is relatively quick as most people can return to their normal activities and work within one or two days after treatment. However, bear in mind to avoid strenuous activities, such as heavy lifting, intense exercise, and running, until the area where the device was inserted is no longer tender.

What sort of Aftercare is Required for Brachytherapy Procedures in South Korea?

You will be given detailed instructions regarding restrictions, diet, and exercises. You may need to undergo a series of follow-up examinations where your doctor will examine your general condition and determine if cancer has changed or stabilized, but you can choose to do this with your local doctor. If you have permanent brachytherapy, you need to avoid sitting closer than 50cm to children (younger than 18 years) and pregnant women for more than 20 minutes each day for at least the first couple of months as you will give off radiation.

What's the Success Rate of Brachytherapy Procedures in South Korea?

Brachytherapy is generally safe and effective. However, it does carry some side effects and risks, such as erectile dysfunction (in approximately 15% to 30% of prostate cancer patients), urinary and digestive problems, bleeding, and blood in urine or stool.

Are there Alternatives to Brachytherapy Procedures in South Korea?

You may undergo conventional radiation therapy if you do not want to have brachytherapy. Your doctor may also recommend other types of cancer treatments, such as chemotherapy, immunotherapy, hormone therapy, and surgery.

What Should You Expect Before and After the Procedure

Cancer is life-threatening and dangerous, it can spread to other organs and cause symptoms that prevent you from enjoying your life. After successful brachytherapy, you will no longer experience any symptoms you had before; the risk of your cancer spreading has significantly reduced.

Whilst the information presented here has been accurately sourced and verified by a medical professional for its accuracy, it is still advised to consult with your doctor before pursuing a medical treatment at one of the listed medical providers. This content was last updated on 28/11/2020.
