If you’ve been diagnosed with non-melanoma skin cancer and have been told you need Mohs Surgery, you need to know about
Image-Guided Superficial Radiotherapy
While Mohs surgery has long been considered the “Gold Standard” for non-melanoma skin cancer treatment, recent studies show that Image-Guided Superficial Radiotherapy or IG-SRT is comparable in effectiveness to Mohs and typically has fewer side effects and better cosmetic outcomes.
IG-SRT is a frontline treatment procedure according to the National Comprehensive Network. It’s an ideal choice for many patients who seek a highly effective but less invasive option to surgery. Watch this short video to learn about Image-Guided SRT – the New Gold Standard for Basal and Squamous Cell Cancer.
“What a difference for someone like me who has had Mohs and then went to this program [IG-SRT], it’s all the difference in the world. It’s peace of mind. The inconvenience of 20 little trips, forget that. That’s not inconvenient at all when you look back and think about going for Mohs, it was a nightmare. I really enjoyed my trips here and I’m glad I did it. My face looks perfectly clear and I have no makeup on.” – Ruby W. Stow, OH
“I would not be so reticent about getting radiation therapy because Mohs Surgery is going to leave a scar. With radiation therapy you cannot tell that you’ve had the therapy and the results are the same, it’s just less invasive and it’s a much more pleasant experience to go through.” – Dick A, Payson, UT
“I feel so thankful that I found this therapy, it’s just so easy and it’s not something that I have to worry about once I leave. You know that it’s going to heal up, I come in here for just a few minutes for treatment and I’m on my way for the rest of the day.” – Carolyn S, Marina Del Rey, CA
Cutting Edge Treatment, Without the Cutting
Image-Guided SRT uses a small, portable device to deliver very low energy just below the surface of the skin to treat non-melanoma skin cancer. The energy used to treat Basal and Squamous Cell Cancer is less than what is required for a chest X-ray and has a cure rate comparable to Mohs surgery.
With Image-Guided SRT, there’s no cutting, no bleeding, no stitches, typically no scars and no need for reconstructive surgery.
Patient: Ruby W
Location: Stow, Ohio
Cancer: Basal Cell Carcinoma
Treatment: Image-Guided Superficial Radiotherapy
Ruby seated comfortably and ready for treatment with Image-Guided SRT.
We can clearly see the basal Cell lesion on Ruby’s cheek prior to first treatment.
It’s not uncommon for the surrounding skin to lighten or darken as treatments progress. This is typically one of the few side-effects of IG-SRT.
Here we see Ruby two weeks after her final treatment. The Basal Cell lesion is gone, and her skin has almost returned to its natural shade.
No two cases are exactly the same. Results may vary. Please consult with a Dermatologist trained in the use of Image-Guided SRT to discuss your individual situation.
