Superficial Radiation Therapy, commonly known as SRT, is a low-energy radiation that goes no deeper than the thickness of the skin. SRT delivers a precise, calibrated dose of radiation that targets the abnormal and more rapidly dividing cells while allowing the surrounding normal tissue time to repair itself. SRT offers a painless, safe and highly effective non-surgical skin cancer treatment.
Georgia Skin & Cancer Clinic proudly offers SRT, a proven non-surgical treatment option for Basal Cell and Squamous Cell Carcinoma (non-melanoma skin cancers). SRT can be used to treat lesions on the arms, legs, back and trunk. It is especially well suited for skin cancers located on the head and neck. With the addition of Superficial Radiation Therapy, we are able to provide not only a cosmetically pleasing result, but also another treatment option for high risk surgery patients, including patients with diabetes and cardiac diseases. SRT offers excellent cure rates that rival surgery. SRT is widely recognized by insurance companies as an effective therapy and is covered by most insurance plans, including Medicare.
