Abstract

It seems clear that thermal-based therapies of prostate cancer have the potential to completely eradicate the prostate gland. Technical modifications continue to improve our ability to use these modalities more effectively, which can be seen in the ever decreasing morbidity from damage to adjacent structures. These treatments offer potential major advantages over surgery and radiation-based treatment modalities.
