Why We Love This Service

What to Expect
Superficial radiation therapy is painless and is a nonsurgical outpatient procedure. The area being treated may feel warm during treatment.

About This Service

SRT is a low-energy radiotherapy device, using the Sensus SRT-100, that treats skin cancer and penetrates no deeper than the thickness of the skin. Because the superficial x-rays concentrate radiation on the skin surface, the treatment has several advantages over surgical procedures. These advantages include:

  • Painless
  • Very short procedure time
  • Heightened safety
  • No anesthesia requirement
  • Minimal to no scarring
  • No post-surgical infections
  • Less chance of recurrence
  • Faster healing process
  • No need for reconstruction after procedure
