On St Patricks Day Dr James Mackean presented at the MENS Health Conference, an event designed to educate GP’s on Men’s Health issues including emerging innovations and changes in treatments. Dr Mackean presented with the Urology Panel on ‘Improving Functional Outcomes for Men with Prostate Cancer’. The presentation highlighted the partnership our Radiation Oncologists have with the greater Urology community. Our team attend Multi-Disciplinary Meetings every week where proposed treatment programs for patients are discussed.

The panel also consisted of Urologists Dr Anthony Kiosoglous and Dr Eric Chung.

The presentation was well received with questions from the attendees including ‘When is Radiation Therapy treatment an option for men diagnosed with Prostate Cancer?’ and ‘What are the radiation treatment types available?’ At Genesis CancerCare we offer the latest in technology for prostate cancer and all treatment options in including VMAT/IMRT, Brachytherapy and spaceOAR.
