“Dr. Prestidge indicated he got 99.9% coverage of the prostate using 12 needles. I perhaps was in recovery for less than an hour. I felt very very comfortable; I had virtually no discomfort for a good period of time.”
CivaString Patient
“I got the CivaString and the results have been excellent! My first PSA after implant was .35 and my second PSA was .20. I am scheduled for my third blood test in July. Your product seems to have done the trick. I’m 75 and back playing racquetball”
