Superficial Radiotherapy (SRT)

What is SRT?

Superficial Radiotherapy Treatment (SRT) is a low energy radiotherapy that goes no deeper than the thickness of the skin. It is a highly effective, painless, and cosmetically attractive alternative to surgery for some cancers and patients. It is a non-surgical alternative to Mohs surgery and to topical chemotherapeutic treatment.

Why low energy radiotherapy?

  • Painless
  • Cure rates similar to surgery
  • Quickest treatment & recovery - 3 minute treatments,
    3-5 days per week, 2 to 3 weeks
  • Best appearance during treatment compared to other options

Who are candidates for SRT?

Patients with:

  • Basal Cell Carcinoma
  • Squamous Cell Carcinoma
  • Bowen's Carcinoma
  • Multiple simultaneous skin cancers
  • Fears of needles or surgery and its cosmetic outcome
  • Medical conditions unfit for surgery (significant cardiac or pulmonary disease)
  • Anti-coagulation medications

What is the cost?

Less than surgery and is covered by most insurance
