Each year millions of Americans are diagnosed with some form of squamous cell carcinoma or basal cell carcinoma. Naturally, this forces those affected to seek out forms of treatment to get rid of the cancerous cells, which are located on the outer layer of the skin. One of those types of treatments is Mohs surgery. First introduced in the 1930s by Dr. Fredrick Mohs, the surgery has garnered the reputation of precisely extracting cancerous cells while keeping healthy skin cells intact. However, no surgery is without its cons. Mohs surgery can be more expensive than other traditional forms of surgery albeit more precise, time-consuming; therefore, difficult for patients who can’t tolerate lengthy procedures under local anesthesia. In some cases, reconstructive plastic surgery is required. Here at Sensus Healthcare, we are happy to present an alternative to Mohs surgery to you. This alternative is the SRT-100™.
