Radiotherapy Clinic

Radiotherapy (or Radiation Therapy) is used for the treatment of most types of skin cancers. It involves the use of high energy x-rays focused on the area to be treated.

Radiotherapy has a cure rate equal to that of surgery and is often the treatment of choice when surgery is difficult, or not suitable, because of other medical conditions.

Treatment is not limited to skin cancers. A number of other conditions can be treated with radiotherapy, including:

  • Bowen's Disease
  • Kaposi's Sarcoma
  • Keloid scars
  • Mycosis Fungoides
  • DSAP

WHY REFER A PATIENT for radiotherapy?

  • Patient may not be suitable candidates for surgery due to co-morbidities
  • Patient may require further treatment post-surgery for management of incomplete removal of dysplastic or cancerous cells
  • Pensioners will be bulk-billed for their radiotherapy treatment

Who can refer?

Patients are referred to us by GPs, dermatologists, public hospitals and through internal referrals from the Skin Health Institute.
