SpaceOAR Improves Patients’
Quality of Life

There are approximately 164,690 new cases of prostate cancer in the United States each year, making it the most common cancer among men.


SERO is proud to offer SpaceOAR, a biocompatible gel that minimizes the side effects of radiation treatment for prostate cancer.

Advantages of SpaceOAR

SpaceOAR is a hydrogel placed between the rectum and prostate. The gel reduces exposure to radiation by up to 24%, and is naturally absorbed in the body after six months. During radiation therapy, SpaceOAR acts as a spacer between the rectum and prostate, resulting in decreased rectal injury. Additional advantages of SpaceOAR include:

  • Improves comfort during and after treatment
  • Significantly reduces rectum radiation exposure
  • Less rectal pain during treatment
  • One-time application, eliminating the need for repeat visits
  • Protects patients from short-term and long-term side effects
