SpaceOAR Hydrogel

What is SpaceOAR Hydrogel?

SpaceOAR Hydrogel is designed to temporarily create space between the prostate and rectum, and reduce the radiation dose delivered to the rectum during radiation therapy. It has been clinically shown to help minimize urinary, sexual and bowel side effects and help protect the quality of life for prostate cancer patients undergoing radiation therapy.
