Prostate brachytherapy is one of the most effective therapies for treating localised prostate cancer, with a success rate of around 90% after 10 years. Compared to other treatments, it has various benefits.

Innovative treatment for benign prostatic hyperplasia

After pioneering prostate laser techniques, the Instituto da Próstata is one of the first centres in Portugal to offer the latest BPH technique known as the Rezum procedure. The method is more effective, less aggressive and does not require hospitalisation.

Patient and Relative Testimonials

After a high PSA test, a biopsy confirmed the worst scenario – prostate cancer. Dr. José Santos Dias calmed my nerves about the treatments and the prognosis. I did the right treatment at the right time, because I was lucky to find the right doctor. I did brachytherapy ... and returned to living life normally... cancer free. It’s a marvel of technology and science.

I couldn’t believe it when my incontinence disappeared!! If you’ve never had it, it’s hard to know what bladder leakage feels like. Thanks to the talents of Dr. José Santos Dias, I had a small operation and was able to return home on the same day. The problem was over after a day. Thank you so much.
