One of the most satisfying treatments that became available to me in the last 2 years has been the SRT-100, a device in my office that treats basal cell and squamous cell carcinomas with superficial radiotherapy.
My patients have responded to SRT in an overwhelmingly positive manner. Imagine having a skin cancer on the tip of the nose, ear, or over the shin bone, and being told that they must have surgery (with a subsequent unsightly scar or anatomic deformity) to cure this cancer.
SRT-100 has five-year data that shows its cure rate is equal to Mohs surgery. With SRT, there's no cutting, no pain, no scar, and no post-operative complications.
