Electronic Brachytherapy

Esteya1Electronic Brachytherapy gives patients a gentle, non-invasive alternative to surgery for treating certain skin cancers.

Electronic brachytherapy places a radiation source directly at the cancerous lesion on the surface of the skin, to destroy the cancer cells while sparing the healthy surrounding tissue. This is an effective method for treating non-melanoma skin cancer (NMSC), including basal cell carcinoma (BCC) and squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), particularly for cases involving a highly visible, functionally sensitive or challenging area.

Messenger Dermatology is a division of Compass Healthcare. Our Compass Cancer Center utilizes the Esteya® Electronic Brachytherapy system to provide a targeted, yet gentle treatment: precise high does radiation to the cancerous site, minimized radiation to healthy tissue, and a reduced chance of scarring. Because the treatment is short and gentle, patients can expect minimal or no recovery time and may return to their normal daily routine quickly.

Esteya is especially beneficial in treating cosmetically challenging areas, such as the face and scalp, and for areas prone to wound closure problems, such as the shin and hand cialis 20mg andorre. Esteya may also be the preferred option for patients whom surgery presents a high intra-operative or post-operative risk of complications.
