Risks Of Superficial Radiation Therapy (SRT)
Superficial radiation therapy (SRT) is one of the safest and most effective systems available for the treatment of keloids and other complex scar tissue after surgical removal and reconstruction. Dr. Kenrick Spence is an expert plastic surgeon who can utilize the SRT-100+™ system for precision targeting of keloid scars. He is able to produce successful outcomes for patients who visit the International Keloid & Scar Treatment Center in Orlando.
There is a risk of keloids returning after treatment,however, this risk is reduced significantly when superficial radiation therapy is a viable treatment option. Dr. Spence provides access to a virtual or in-person consultation, allowing patients to discuss potential treatment plans including SRT in combination with follow-up treatments to prevent the recurrence of keloid scarring.
SRT involves low levels of radiation that are precisely directed to the scar site. If your scar or keloid is causing confidence issue then SRT may be the perfect solution for you. Please call the International Keloid & Scar Treatment Center to learn more about the risks and benefits of superficial radiation therapy. Dr. Spence and his team are always available to provide advice and guidance.
