ELECTRONIC BRACHYTHERAPY (EBX)

At American Skin Institute, we offer non-surgical skin cancer treatments to provide effective care with minimal side effects. We understand the challenges of traditional treatments like radiation and Mohs surgery and have introduced less-invasive solutions. One such innovative treatment is Electronic Brachytherapy (EBX), which uses targeted x-ray radiation to remove cancer lesions without harming surrounding tissues.

This cutting-edge technology makes treatment easier physically and psychologically. During the procedure, an applicator is placed directly on the lesion, delivering x-ray bursts for a few minutes. Since the radiation levels are non-toxic, no specialized protective clothing is needed, and your provider can stay with you throughout the treatment and offer many advantages, including:

  • Minimal blistering. Unlike more conventional radiation treatments, EBX causes very little (if any) blistering on the skin. This significantly increases comfort and reduces the negative psychological effects of skin cancer treatment.
  • There is absolutely no pain or discomfort during treatment, and you can continue other daily activities afterwards.
  • Because of the targeted approach, an EBX treatment session can be conducted in as little as 5 minutes; without you having to make special arrangements.
  • As the EBX doesn’t use isotope radiation, there is very low toxicity associated with the treatment; increasing your safety and minimizing potential damage to surrounding tissues commonly feared with traditional radiation treatments.
  • The EBX treatment provides positive cosmetic results, and typically does not require reconstructive surgery to remove scars commonly associated with Mohs surgery.
  • This treatment is non-invasive, with no need for needles or incisions; which reduces recovery time and improves quality of life during treatment.
  • EBX non-surgical treatment has been successfully tested on thousands of patients around the country with positive results, low cancer recurrence rates, and is FDA-approved.
