Rising PSA after Seeding

My PSA has been rising for the past 30 months.  I had 129 Pd 103 seeds implanted in January 08.  Had a psa of over 20 before seeds implanted.  6 out of 36 biopsies showed cancer with one biospy at the 5 level on the Gleason scale and the rest in the 2 or 3 range.  After seeding the psa was 0.2 and is rising on a predicted basis and is now 3.4.  I'm having psa tests every three months.  Is there anything else you would recommend?  I have an excellent Urologist and Oncologist. However I've been told by laymen that I should seek out a Prostate Clinic.  Is it possible to have the Prostate removed using robotic surgery after seed implant?
