The Urology Specialists of Maryland at Mercy Medical Center in Baltimore, Maryland, diagnose and treat a variety of urinary incontinence conditions. Our doctors work with specialists at Radiation Oncology at Mercy to provide patients with advanced treatment options such as brachytherapy radiation.
In some cases, persistent urinary incontinence may be caused by cancer, such as prostate cancer. Brachytherapy is targeted radiation therapy used to treat cancer. It is a procedure that places radioactive material inside the body in higher doses and in more specific areas of the body as compared to external radiation. This type of internal radiation may also have fewer side effects than external beam radiation.
