How Superficial Radiation Therapy is Revolutionizing Skin Cancer Treatment

Tennessee Skin Cancer Keloid Non-Surgical TreatmentDr. Michael H. Gold of Gold Skin Care Center in Nashville is now offering non-surgical skin cancer treatment and keloid removal with Superficial Radiation Therapy by the SRT-100™.

We believe every patient has a choice when it comes to his or her healthcare. That’s why we now offer a painless, safe, and highly effective non-surgical option for skin cancer treatment and keloid removal — Superficial Radiation Therapy using Sensus Healthcare’s SRT-100™.

There are four million new cases of basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma diagnosed in the United States each year. Skin cancer treatment options typically involve invasive incisions that damage healthy tissue and result in a lengthy recovery period and unsightly scarring that may take an emotional toll on patients. Fortunately, the SRT-100™ at Gold Skin Care Center is changing all that.

How Does the SRT-100™ Treat Skin Cancer?

The SRT-100™ delivers a precise, calibrated dose of SRT-100™ that only goes skin deep. This low-dose of radiation safely destroys cancer cells without damaging the healthy surrounding tissue. There is no cutting or stitching, less risk for infection, and no need for reconstructive plastic surgery to repair surgical scars.

Safe and Effective Keloid Treatment

Patients with skin cancer aren’t the only ones who can benefit from medical dermatology treatment with the SRT-100™. Superficial Radiation Therapy is also an effective treatment for keloids.

When the skin is wounded — whether through surgery or injury — fibrous tissue called scar tissue forms over the wound. In some cases, excessive scar tissue grows, forming a smooth, hard growth over the incision or injury. This growth is called a keloid and is often much larger than the original wound.

Keloids are chronic, non-malignant tumors that often form following surgery, but may also be triggered by other skin traumas, such as acne, chicken pox, ear piercing, burns, and other skin injuries. These unsightly, embarrassing, and sometimes painful scars affect nearly 18 million people in the U.S.

The SRT-100™ safely destroys the cells that form keloids, keeping the skin smooth while the incision heals. Patients may require a series of treatments with SRT-100™ depending on the size of the keloid scar.

What Can You Expect During Superficial Radiation Therapy?

Superficial Radiation Therapy with SRT-100™ is performed right in our Nashville office and delivers optimum results to treat basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma and remove keloid scars without the negative side effects of invasive treatments. This treatment is ideal for patients who have existing medical conditions that may make surgery a serious health risk.
