Dr. Kamen Nedev presented the advantages of brachytherapy in the treatment of cervical and prostate cancer. Brachytherapy is accredited as a golden standard in combination with radiotherapy and chemotherapy. It allows the important surrounding organs and tissues to be preserved and the quality of life of patients with these diseases has been significantly improved following this type of procedure.

Brachytherapy is a type of internal radiation therapy where the source of radiation is inserted into the tumor itself or in close proximity to it. After the procedure, the radiation source is pulled out and the patient can return home at the same day. 

Dr. Nedev and his colleagues at Acibadem City Clinic Cancer Center are specialized in treating cervical and prostate cancer through this method.

The presentation provoked a lot of questions from the specialists concernign the treatment itself, as well as the details of patient access. Brachytherapy can be administered after a decision by an oncology committee and is taken over by the Health Insurance Fund.
