Georgia Urology and Dr. Brent Sharpe have pioneered a new chapter in prostate cancer care by introducing the NanoKnife System at Northeast Georgia Medical Center (NGMC) Braselton, marking the facility as the first in North Georgia to offer this innovative treatment. Dr. Sharpe, a leading surgeon at Georgia Urology, has successfully completed three NanoKnife procedures, demonstrating the practice’s commitment to advanced and minimally invasive options for prostate cancer patients.
NanoKnife is a specific type of therapy that precisely targets and eliminates cancer cells while protecting healthy tissue nearby. It’s a gentle yet effective treatment for prostate cancer, focusing on just the affected areas to reduce side effects like urinary incontinence and sexual dysfunction. This makes NanoKnife a great option for patients with early-stage, slow-growing prostate cancer, especially those looking for less invasive treatments or those who can’t undergo traditional treatment methods.
“With NanoKnife, we target only the cancerous cells, leaving intact vital structures like nerves, urethra, and sphincter muscles. This leads to a significant decrease in side effects, shorter hospital stays, and quicker recoveries,” explained Dr. Sharpe.
Georgia Urology is one of the first independent specialty practices in Georgia to harness this technology and the first to offer it as a treatment option to the general patient population, regardless of insurance.
“This is a significant step forward in urological cancer treatment. We can now provide a previously unavailable service to more patients”, explained Dr. Sharpe.
