Did you know?
One in five people will develop skin cancer in their lifetime, with more than 5.4 million cases diagnosed annually in the U.S.1 The majority of cancers appear on sun exposed areas such as the face, scalp, nose, ears, hands, arms and legs.

If you have been diagnosed with nonmelanoma skin cancer (NMSC), such as basal or squamous cell carcinoma, you may have concerns about scarring, wound healing or preserving functionality in anatomically challenging areas.

" Skin eBx is the most comfortable treatment that I have ever had for skin cancer. The usual way is burning the spot or removing it surgically, which is uncomfortable and does affect your appearance for a while until the spot heals. Skin eBx had no after effects and I was able to continue with my normal life right away."

– Miriam R., Patient

What is Skin eBx?
Skin eBx is an advanced, patient-friendly option for NMSC treatment. Skin eBx provides an effective and convenient alternative to surgery allowing patients to return to normal activities immediately with no downtime.
Exceptional Breakthrough Technology Delivering Excellent Results
While surgery is considered to be the standard of care for NMSC, for some patients, surgery is not an option or a preference. A completely non-invasive approach, no cutting, bleeding or stitching is required with skin eBx, offering reduced risk of complications compared to surgery.

Skin eBx uses a miniaturized x-ray source to deliver a precise radiation dose to your cancer lesion. This targeted treatment directs the radiation to the size and shape of the cancerous area, carefully destroying cancer cells and sparing surrounding healthy tissue.

From the market leader in skin electronic brachytherapy, skin eBx offers a safe and effective outpatient option delivering excellent clinical and cosmetic results.2 More than 10,000 NMSC patients have been successfully treated with skin eBx.

Treatment requires just a few brief visits to your doctor. Skin eBx is administered in five simple steps.
  • A clinician will prepare a customized set-up designed to target the lesion while protecting surrounding healthy tissue.
  • A small surface applicator is placed on the skin where the radiation is to be delivered.
  • The miniaturized x-ray source is placed in the applicator and energized to deliver a precise, prescribed dose of radiation.
  • Radiation is delivered in just a few minutes in a standard exam room while medical personnel remain in the room.
  • Once the treatment is complete, customized treatment devices are removed. The patient is able to return to normal activities immediately.

*If you are a patient that has been diagnosed with Early Stage Breast Cancer, your Lumpectomy procedure can be done by any experienced breast surgeon, and they will request the IORT treatment to take place during the surgery.

(At this time surgery must be done at West Shore, as the equipment is stationed there)

We also have surgeons on our team that can do the lumpectomy surgery and IORT, if you have not already consulted with a surgeon.
Please visit the OUR DOCTORS page for a list of surgeons that we work with.
This list will be updated as more surgeons are trained.
