Brachytherapy - Dr. Israel Deutsch

Israel Deutsch, M.D., the Director of the Brachytherapy Program at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Medical Center in New York City, discusses a technique to treat cancer known as brachytherapy, where small pieces of radioactive material are placed inside patients, near the tumors. The therapy can be used on its own or in combination with other therapies such as surgery, chemotherapy, or external beam radiation.
