Exhibit 99.1

 Theragenics Corporation(R) Reports Fourth Quarter and Year-End 2005
                    Consolidated Financial Results

    BUFORD, Ga.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan. 18, 2006--Theragenics
Corporation(R) (NYSE:TGX), a medical device company serving the
prostate cancer treatment and surgical markets, today announced
consolidated financial results for the fourth quarter and year ended
December 31, 2005. Consolidated revenue for the quarter was $11.4
million, an increase of $2.9 million, or 34.3% over the fourth quarter
of 2004. For the 12-month period, consolidated revenue was $44.3
million, an increase of $10.9 million or 32.8%, compared to the prior
year. Net loss for the quarter was $236,000, or $0.01 per share,
compared to a net loss of $1.3 million, or $0.04 per share in the
fourth quarter of 2004. For the year, the net loss was $29.0 million,
or $0.93 per share, compared to a net loss of $4.3 million, or $0.14
per share in 2004. Revenue improvements during the year included
increases in sales of both TheraSeed(R) and I-Seed brachytherapy
products and the inclusion of revenue from CP Medical's products.
Theragenics acquired CP Medical on May 6, 2005.
    The quarter and year ended December 31, 2005 include pre-tax
restructuring charges of $475,000 for the quarter and $33.4 million
for the year, respectively. $32.0 million of the restructuring charges
for the year were one-time non-cash charges. On a non-GAAP basis, the
pre-tax earnings, excluding these restructuring charges, would have
been $239,000 for the fourth quarter of 2005. A reconciliation of the
pre-tax loss computed in accordance with GAAP to the non-GAAP pre-tax
earnings (loss) excluding restructuring charges appears in a schedule
accompanying this press release.
    Commenting on the results, Chief Executive Officer and President
M. Christine Jacobs stated, "2005 was a year of transformation for
Theragenics. We made some tough decisions that appear to be paying
off. We restructured the Company in an effort to right size our cost
structure and fully utilize our resources to support growth in our two
business segments. In May, we acquired CP Medical. This acquisition
has had a positive impact on our results of operations. We continue to
be pleased with the sales performance in our core prostate
brachytherapy seed business. The success of our 2005
direct-to-consumer brachytherapy campaign has encouraged us to
continue these efforts in 2006, with a new twist. We have entered into
an association with ESPN and the B.A.S.S. Tour and recently produced a
commercial that will be aired in conjunction with several 2006
B.A.S.S. Tour fishing events. In our surgical device segment, our
efforts will continue to be focused on product and customer
development, sales growth and vertical integration. As a stronger,
leaner and more focused company, we are also better able to pursue
investment opportunities to provide additional strategic
diversification and continued growth. All this culminates in what we
believe will be a turnaround year for the Company. We expect to
continue our diversification strategy, grow our businesses and look
forward to returning to profitability in 2006."

    This press release contains non-GAAP financial measures used by

Management believes presentation of financial measures excluding the

among other things, risks and uncertainties related to new product and
process development cycles, integration risks, potential costs and
delays in production optimization, effectiveness and execution of
