Murfreesboro Medical Clinic Dermatology Department Now Offering Painless, Non-Surgical Skin Cancer Treatment

Murfreesboro Medical Clinic's Dermatology department will soon be offering Superficial Radiotherapy (SRT) for non-melanoma skin cancer treatments.

SRT is a non-invasive alternative to treating non-melanoma skin cancers. This low energy radiotherapy is used over the affected area, penetrating the skin with radiotherapy waves. Treatment is pain-free, only takes about 30 seconds, and has no downtime following the procedure. Sensus Healthcare, founder of the SRT technology, states, "When radiation interacts with a cancerous cell, it alters the cell's DNA (or genetic make-up) and its ability to reproduce, which ultimately leads to cell death in the cancerous tumor."

SRT has actually been in practice for many years. Surgery became more popular, and pushed aside this effective technology as an option.

Murfreesboro Medical Clinic Dermatology is excited to be the only clinic in the area utilizing this technology. Dr. Kattine shares his thoughts on offering this new technology to the community, "SRT is a proven treatment for non-melanoma skin cancer that provides excellent cosmetic results with little to no restriction in daily activities." Further benefits include this as "an excellent alternative for patients who may not be a candidate for surgery," Dr. Kattine adds.
