In this 3-part educational series, Dr. Mark Nestor reviews the core concepts and treatment modalities in NMSC, provides a literature review of the clinical benefits of SRT, and presents and discusses patient cases.

Treating Non-Melanoma Skin Cancer


Mike Masterson, a correspondent for the Arkansas Democrat Gazette, wrote an article in 2019 detailing how the SRT-100 machine was an integral part of curing his non-melanoma skin cancer. Since his successful treatment he has been an advocate for any Arkansas dermatologists to adopt SRT as a part of their non-melanoma skin cancer treatment protocol. Masterson goes on to praise the The Dermatology Office on Linwood Drive in Paragould and Helms Dermatology on West Main Street in Russellville for being the first two practices in the state of Arkansas to begin using SRT machines. 

"For me and others who've experienced this 21st century treatment, it's definitely a gift to have an effective choice beyond what otherwise often involves surgery, bleeding and stitches. There's also no anesthesia, risk of infection or scarring involved. In short, there's no need to undergo the trauma involved with reconstructive plastic surgery if you can get to this machine," said Masterson.

Keloid Treatment Provided by Dr. Pimple Popper using SRT

"Our patients treated with the SRT-100 are typically very pleased with the entire experience. Our physicians enjoy using the device, it provides a pleasant change of pace to their routine workload and the patient satisfaction is high. It's great to have a non-surgical option for my skin cancer patients who either don't want surgery or their site presents surgical difficulties. Additionally, I see many patients with keloids, and it's fantastic that I can offer SRT as part of my treatment protocol with the confidence that I finally have a reliable procedure to help them."
Sandra Lee, MD, FAAD, FAACS aka Dr. Pimple Popper of Skin Physicians and Surgeons

Dr. Sandra Lee from TLC's Dr. Pimple Popper is notoriously known for giving her patients new hope. As we have seen from her television show, many patients go to her to not only seek care for their skin disorders, but they also go to her to seek treatment for keloids. For treating keloids, Dr. Sandra Lee always resorts to using Sensus Healthcare's SRT-100+™. Our line of SRT devices utilizes Superficial Radiation Therapy (SRT) to target keloided cells at the source.

As we can see from the below video, once the keloids are surgically removed, they are then treated with a precise dose of Superficial Radiation Therapy. After a series of treatments in the time span of two weeks, patients have reported a 95% cure rate when Superficial Radiation Therapy is used. Sensus Healthcare is proud to offer a treatment for keloids that really works. Contact us today to learn more.

His answer to treating these patients is to utilize SRT or in other words what he calls "the sniper rifle approach to skin cancer” as this radiation treatment is just confined to the skin.

If you are one of the 3.5 million Americans diagnosed with non-melanoma skin cancer, you have a choice. Skin cancer treatment does not have to be a nightmare. With the SRT-100, patients can choose no cutting, no stitching, no scarring and no long recovery times.


Local residents are opting out of surgery, and are instead undergoing a non-invasive procedure for the treatment of non-melanoma skin cancers.

The SRT-100, which met standards set by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, is a tool that’s relatively new to the Rio Grande Valley.

“It compares very favorably with any other modality, including mole surgery, surgical incisions, plastic surgery,” said dermatologist Dr. Oscar Sotelo.

Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer, and more than 5.4 million cases of non-melanoma skin cancer are treated in the United States every year, according to the Skin Cancer Foundation.

The machine targets the affected area and emits a low-dose of radiation to remove cancer through a series of 12 treatments.

“Fractionation allows the bad cells to be destroyed by the radiation and the normal cells to survive and repair themselves in between treatments,” Sotelo said.

The treatment only radiates through about five millimeters of the surface of the skin—something Jerry Treviño was pleased to hear.

“I was literally in and out in 15 minutes and totally painless,” Treviño said. “That was the biggest thing.”

The Skin Cancer Foundation suggests seeing a physician every year for a professional skin exam, as well as using sunscreen and covering up when out in the sun.


Treatment with Sensus Healthcare's SRT-100™ following surgical removal of this man's keloids reduced the chance of recurrence to just 4%.

This video is part of Healio’s video perspective series from the 2017 AAD Annual Meeting conference and has been published with the headline, “Resurgence of cutaneous radiation therapy for skin cancer.”

During the two-minute video, Dr. Cockerell discusses the resurgence of radiation therapy largely due to new technology developed by Sensus Healthcare which ultimately provides physicians like himself with more options to better treat their patients. Dr. Cockerell also discusses how the treatment is ideal for patients who are not good surgical candidates, who are older, who are fatigued from a large number of surgeries, or who have NMSC on areas like the tip of their noses or eyelids. Towards the end of the interview, Dr. Cockerell describes the treatment as extremely safe, producing excellent cosmetic results for patients, and generating a lot of excitement in the dermatology and oncology fields.
