If you’ve been diagnosed with skin cancer, you might be wondering what your options are when it comes to your treatment. For nearly 90 years, Mohs surgery has been the procedure of choice to treat skin cancer. But there is now an alternative skin cancer treatment. Sensus Healthcare’s line of SRT devices utilizes Superficial Radiation Therapy to attack non-melanoma skin cancer cells at the source without cutting the skin, allowing patients to return to their lives directly following treatment.
Mohs surgery is a highly specialized microscopic procedure for removing skin cancer in which the affected skin lesion is excised in its entirety utilizing frozen section histology. Mohs surgery can treat most skin cancers but is commonly used for basal cell carcinomas, squamous cell carcinomas, malignant melanoma, and rare skin tumors. While effective in removing cancer, Mohs surgery is laborious and time-consuming, requiring recovery time and sometimes resulting in scarring and infection.
Alternative Skin Cancer Treatment
The alternative to Mohs surgery that is non-surgical and pain-free is called Superficial Radiation Therapy (SRT). The cure rates of Sensus Healthcare’s SRT devices compete with those of surgical treatments, destroying skin cancer without the side effects of surgical procedures. Our SRT-100™, SRT-100+™, and SRT-100 Vision™ devices give a precise, calibrated, pain-free, low-dose of Superficial Radiation Therapy that effectively destroys skin cancer without cutting, stitching, bleeding, or anesthesia. There is no risk of scarring, infection, or need for reconstructive surgery.
At Sensus Healthcare, our alternative skin cancer treatment is the easiest, most effective non-melanoma skin cancer treatment option with no downtime or lifestyle restrictions following the procedure. This treatment can be safely performed right in your doctor’s office!
