Brachytherapy radiation can be used to treat cancer of the cervix. The radioactive material is placed in a small device, which is then inserted into the vagina or cervix. In cases where patients have had a hysterectomy, radioactive material is typically placed in a tube, which is then inserted into the vagina. In other cases, the material is placed in metal tube that is inserted into the uterus, while small metal holders or a disc-like objects are placed near to the cervix. Depending on your particular needs, Dr Paradza will recommend either low-dose rate brachytherapy, which will completed over a few days, or high-dose rate brachytherapy, which is performed over several treatment sessions about a week apart.


Dr Paradza offers high quality, personalised, evidence-based and peer reviewed multidisciplinary cancer care for all his patients.
