We Now offer SRT: Superficial Radiation Therapy Treatments!
SRT is a non-invasive form of radiation therapy that delivers a precise, calibrated low-dose of radiation to the skin and superficial tissue to treat some non-melanoma skin cancers such as basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and various skin conditions. 100% of the dose is deposited at the surface and goes no deeper than 10mm. As a result, it does not harm surrounding or underlying healthy tissue while targeting cancer cells. It is a good alternative to surgery especially for areas on the face where surgery might leave less than desirable cosmetic outcome.
