Superficial Radiation Therapy
Reading Dermatology Associates, is the exclusive provider of Superficial Radiation Therapy (SRT) in Greater Berks County.
SRT is low-energy radiotherapy for treating primarily basal cell and squamous cell carcinomas. Applied only to specific areas of the skin requiring treatment, while sparing healthy skin cells surrounding the cancerous area, SRT penetrates only a short distance below the skin. This non-invasive skin cancer treatment is exceptionally effective in treating lesions on the arms, legs, and back, but especially well-suited for skin cancers in areas that would most likely result in a less desirable cosmetic outcome from surgery, such as the nose, eyelids, lips, corner of the mouth, and ears, all areas that are difficult to reconstruct.
SRT offers patients a skin cancer treatment that results in minimal-to-no scarring, minimal-to-no discoloration, and minimal-to-no discomfort.
Superficial Radiation Therapy treatments are being performed by Dr. Jason Hendrix and Dr. Dean Burget, both board-certified physicians at RDA.
