on why they choose Barrigel for their prostate cancer patients undergoing radiation therapy. Barrigel is proven to significantly reduce rectal side effects from radiation.1


Barrigel was very easy to teach my staff and can efficiently be performed between patients in my office practice. I find this procedure to be very satisfying. You can sculpt the gel to differing patient anatomy with excellent results.

In my experience, Barrigel is safer due to the ability to control its location and alter its placement during the procedure. This allows us to have a more uniform result in tougher cases where another procedure could result in delay of care.

The ease-of-use injecting Barrigel allows the implanter to inject the spacer under no time constraint, and switch easily from sagittal to transverse ultrasound views for symmetrical, excellent coverage of the entire prostate gland. It's a no-brainer.
