Skin Cancer

Superficial Radiation Therapy (SRT)

Superficial Radiotherapy or SRT is a safe, painless and effective FDA-approved modality to treat non-melanoma skin cancer such as basal cell carcinoma or squamous cell carcinoma, virtually any place on the body. SRT is not like the radiation used to treat other cancers.

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.

Advanced Dermatology & Cosmetic Surgery is proud to introduce SRT-100 non-surgical radiotherapy treatment for non-melanoma skin cancers such as basal cell carcinoma or squamous cell carcinoma with state of the art radiotherapy suites in Jacksonville and Winter Park. 
Because the superficial x-rays concentrate radiation dose on the skin surface, SRT-100™ treatment has several advantages over surgical procedures for non-melanoma skin cancers. These advantages include:

  • Safe & Effective
  • Same results as surgery without the pain
  • Very short treatment sessions
  • Virtually painless / no cutting
  • Minimal to no scarring / no stitching
  • Virtually no risk of nerve damage
  • No anesthesia required
  • Virtually no post-surgical infections
  • Faster healing process
  • No post reconstructive surgery required
  • High cure rates

No down time – you can still shower, play golf, tennis etc.!
