Martin Hansen

Martin was diagnosed with prostate cancer last fall. When presented with the treatment options he decided that Cyberknife was the best option for him. His urologist referred him to Dr. Nathan Tennyson who recommended he have SpaceOAR hydrogel prior to starting treatment. He explained that this is a new product designed to reduce the side effects of radiation treatment to the prostate. Martin underwent five Cyberknife treatments and experienced no side effects. He will continue to be followed by his physicians but is optimistic about the outcome. “At our first meeting Dr. Tennyson was very informative, gave me a sense of comfort and he was positive about the treatment and the results. The staff at the cancer center is wonderful, you can’t beat them. I gave them all a hug when I came in for my follow up visit”.

Stephen Blaschke

Last fall my PSA rose significantly, after undergoing a biopsy I was diagnosed with prostate cancer. I saw a surgeon and a radiation oncologist, spent several weeks researching the options and speaking with other prostate cancer patients. I opted to have radiation. The question then became where to have my treatment, I spend part of the year in Spokane, Washington so I could either have my treatment in the cold, icy weather or in sunny south Florida. I decided the better option would be Florida! I was fortunate to find Dr. Raj Rajpara and the cancer center at Jupiter Medical Center. They were using a new product, SpaceOAR hydrogel, that minimizes side effects. I did well with my treatment and did not experience any significant side effects. "This was a first-class experience, I was extremely pleased with Dr. Rajpara and the entire team. Everyone was very professional and always on time. I was in and out quickly for my treatment and went on with my day.”

Oded’s Story

Oded was diagnosed with prostate cancer several years ago. It was considered a low risk tumor and he was put on active surveillance. When his PSA began to rise he started to research treatment options and found Cyberknife was recommended. He discussed this treatment with his urologist who agreed that it was an option for him. Oded was in the process of moving to Jupiter and after doing some research found Dr. Raj Rajpara at Jupiter Medical Center. His urologist knew Dr. Rajpara and recommended he see him. Dr. Rajpara recommended he receive an injection of SpaceOAR hyrdrogel prior to his treatment to lessen the side effects associated with treating prostate cancer. Cyberknife treatments were given every other day for a total of five treatments. Oded experienced some side effects, discussed them with Dr. Rajpara and they were managed effectively. Within a week after completing his treatment Oded was feeling good, back in the gym and traveling. “I felt very comfortable with Dr. Rajpara from the beginning, he is very knowledgeable. I think I was lucky to find him and the treatment I had.”
