What is SpaceOAR® Hydrogel?

SpaceOAR Hydrogel is an absorbable, water-based soft gel implant, specifically designed to reduce the known short and long-term side-effects from radiotherapy, including bowel leakage, rectal bleeding, urgency or inflammation and sexual dysfunction.

How is SpaceOAR® implanted?

SpaceOAR® is implanted during a minimally invasive, day case procedure under general anaesthetic or sedation, currently available at seven Nuffield Health Hospitals. The procedure takes less than 30 minutes and there is little discomfort associated with it. Find out more about SpaceOAR® by downloading the GenesisCare brochure below.
