Abstract

Modern prostate cryotherapy has evolved into an exact science of controlled freezing with safety features such as warming needles and urethral warmer, thus minimizing complications of the crude methods of yesteryears. In properly selected patients, it has proven to be at par with the currently accepted treatment options for both localized and locally advanced disease. Cryotherapy has reached Philippine soil in the late 2003 and so far, initial results seems encouraging and with time, should not be different from that achieved by larger international series from centers of excellence.
