Prostate Cancer Care at Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital–Plymouth

Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital–Plymouth provides high-quality prostate cancer care from experienced oncologists (cancer doctors) and other specialists. Your prostate cancer care team uses the latest equipment and research-backed treatment options to help you achieve the best possible outcome.

Our convenient community hospital location keeps you close to your home, work and support systems.

Multidisciplinary Team Approach

Our program offers you a team-centered approach to care. You’ll have a whole team of experts working together to achieve the best possible outcomes for your prostate cancer. Together, the team has extensive experience diagnosing and treating prostate cancer.

SpaceOAR Treatment

In addition to extensive surgical and oncology treatment options, BID Plymouth offers SpaceOAR. Your care team may recommend SpaceOAR as part of radiation therapy treatment to minimize the risk of side effects.

SpaceOAR hydrogel is an option for men who get radiation treatment for prostate cancer. It provides space between the rectum and the prostate, making it much less likely that the rectum is exposed to radiation. This greatly decreases your chance of a reduction in quality of life from bowel, urinary and sexual side effects.

For more information, contact our Radiation Therapy department at  508-830-2575.

Testing for Recurrent Prostate Cancer

If you have suspected recurrent prostate cancer based on a rising prostate-specific antigen (PSA), we can help. We offer positron emission tomography (PET) and computed tomography (CT) imaging. Speak with your health care provider to see if these scans may be an option for you.

If you need further treatments or consultations, our own specialists and physicians at BID Plymouth may coordinate your care with other experts from Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston.
