The Urology Center of Colorado is the first site in Denver to offer radiation therapy patients the SpaceOAR hydrogel before their first treatment.

The Urology Center of Colorado (TUCC) is pioneering a new tool proven to protect prostate cancer patients from the negative effects of radiation therapy. On December 9th, first patient at TUCC will be injected with SpaceOAR hydrogel, the first FDA cleared spacing device to protect the rectum in men undergoing radiation therapy for prostate cancer.
The SpaceOAR System is intended to temporarily position the anterior rectal wall away from the prostate during radiotherapy for prostate cancer, creating space to protect the rectum from radiation exposure. TUCC is the first treatment center in Denver and one of the first centers nationwide to adopt the advanced technology.

Are women really healthier than men? Generally speaking, yes. Men die on average more than five years earlier than women. We experience life-threatening illnesses, like heart disease and cancer, at higher rates. And, according to the Men’s Health Network, we make half as many visits to our doctor for preventive care.
As a man, and as a doctor, I aspire to work toward health parity between the sexes. That’s why I’d like to recognize the public health issue that men’s health is becoming and encourage both men and women to begin working together to reverse these alarming trends.
