The director of the Fargo Dermatology Clinic provides information about a novel approach of treating various types of skin cancer in North Dakota



Fargo, North Dakota – In the F-M metro area, a novel approach to treating several forms of skin cancer is currently in use.

A treatment approach known as Image-Guided Superficial Radiotherapy (Image-Guided SRT) is now available at the Fargo Center for Dermatology.

Many various types of skin malignancies, including those that have spread to soft tissues like the ears, eyes, nose, lips, and shins, can be treated using this non-surgical approach.

“I am particularly pleased to bring Image-Guided SRT to the State, offering this remarkable non-surgical option for common skin cancer to our population, “said Rachel Ness, M.D., founder of Fargo Center for Dermatology.
