Each year, more than 3.3 million Americans are treated for non-melanoma skin cancers. More than half of new diagnoses are in patients over the age of 60, who may be at elevated risk for surgical complications from medical conditions such as diabetes and heart disease. Atlanta Dermatology & Laser Surgery offers an effective, nonsurgical treatment option, called Superficial Radiation Therapy – SRT.
Dr. Jerry Cooper is one of only a few dermatologists to offer this technology in the Atlanta area.
The SRT Technology and the SRT-100™ Treatment System are specifically designed to treat Skin Cancer. Unlike the other more powerful radiation devices used for treating other cancers, SRT is designed to only penetrate up to 5mm below the surface of your skin. It preserves the surrounding healthy tissue while effectively treating the malignant skin cancer cells. In other words, Superficial Radiotherapy (SRT) is a proven non-surgical choice that goes no deeper than the thickness of the skin.
The SRT-100™ treatment has several advantages over surgical procedures for non-melanoma skin cancers. These advantages include:
No down time – you can still shower, play golf, tennis etc.!
Radiation treats skin cancer by altering the DNA in abnormal cells. This prevents cancerous cells from reproducing, and eventually destroys malignant skin cancers.
SRT is a low energy form of radiotherapy. It penetrates just beneath the surface of the skin, effectively targeting basal cell and squamous cell carcinomas. The cure rate is high, and treatment is effective in areas that don’t heal readily, such as legs or scalp. SRT results in minimal scarring, so it is a good choice for areas of cosmetic concern, including face and nose.
