Congratulations to Dr. Parthiv S. Mehta on Receiving The SpaceOAR Center of Excellence!
Dr. Parthiv S. Mehta Recognized as Center of Excellence for SpaceOAR Hydrogel, a Device Designed to Reduce Unintentional Side Effects of Prostate Cancer Radiation Therapy
Center of Excellence Recognizes a High Degree of Experience with Applying SpaceOAR Hydrogel
Parthiv S. Mehta, MD has been designated as a Center of Excellence for SpaceOAR™ Hydrogel - a device manufactured by Boston Scientific and designed to reduce the radiation dose delivered to the rectum during prostate cancer radiation treatment. Due to the rectum’s close proximity to the prostate, it can become unintentionally damaged during therapy, leading to issues with bowel function.1 SpaceOAR Hydrogel is designed to push the rectum away from the prostate, reducing the radiation dose delivered to the organ, which may lessen damage to the rectum.2 The Center of Excellence designation recognizes Parthiv S. Mehta, MD with a high degree of experience applying SpaceOAR™ Hydrogel and commitment to minimizing the impact on urinary, sexual and bowel quality of life for prostate cancer patients undergoing radiation therapy.
