Cutting Edge Skin Cancer Treatment at Green Dermatology & Cosmetic Center

A couple of months ago, we introduced you to a cutting-edge clinical service that Green Dermatology & Cosmetic Center had been offering for the last few years:  Superficial Radiation Therapy, otherwise known in the field of medical dermatology as SRT. This treatment is an alternative, non-surgical solution for non-melanoma skin cancer and keloids, and uses an innovative device that is able to preserve healthy tissue while destroying malignant skin cancer cells.

At Green Dermatology & Cosmetic Center, a premier medical and cosmetic dermatology center near Boca, we offer this service to our patients who are seeking a different method of skin cancer treatment.

Because surgery is not always necessary for every skin cancer patient!

It can be hard for patients to fully grasp the concept of surgery. It’s not always easy to understand or accept the procedure, the side effects that may or may not occur post-surgery, and the results. A lot of patients are reluctant to agree to go under the knife, and rightfully so – surgery is a big deal. Unfortunately, however, it is the only option for successful treatment in certain instances.

But when it comes to the removal of certain skin cancers, there is an alternative solution.

SRT uses targeted, low-levels of radiation to cause destruction of cancer’s DNA, allowing for faster healing times and minimal to no scarring. Dr. Green uses SRT to treat skin cancers such as Basal Cell Carcinoma and Squamous Cell Carcinoma. These are the most common varieties of skin cancers, commonly occur on fair-skinned people, and are directly caused by sun damage. These types of skin cancer may appear on the ears, face, lips, mouth, hands, arms, legs — basically anywhere on the body that has suffered from sun damage.

According to Sensus Healthcare, SRT effectively destroys basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma, as well as the non-malignant tumor cells that cause keloids. There is no cutting, bleeding or stitching involved, and the procedure can be completed safely right in a physician’s office. The benefits of SRT treatment certainly outweigh those of invasive surgery. Sensus Healthcare confirms that there is no pain, no need for anesthesia, no risk or infection or scarring, no need for reconstructive plastic surgery, no restrictions, and no downtime. Patients heal quickly and can resume their normal lifestyle following treatment.

Best of all, with SRT skin cancer treatment, there is no harm done to any of the surroundings of underlying healthy tissue.

Patients of Green Dermatology & Cosmetic Center can say a final goodbye to surgery with the option of SRT available right in our office. With a cure rate of 95%, SRT is a preferred method of skin cancer removal treatment for conditions including Keloid scars, Basal Cell Carcinoma, Squamous Cell Carcinoma, Metatypical Carcinoma, Cutaneous Appendage Carcinoma, Actinic Keratosis, and Kaposi’s Sarcoma. Green Dermatology & Cosmetic Center is excited to be able to offer this efficient and effective service to our patients suffering from skin cancer but does not want to go through a surgical procedure.
