What Is GentleCure? 

GentleCure uses advanced radiation-based therapy that redefines the standard of care for skin cancer treatment. It offers a range of benefits that make it superior in many ways to traditional methods, such as Mohs surgery. This nonsurgical procedure provides efficient, minimally invasive treatment while achieving exceptional outcomes. 

What Are the Benefits of GentleCure? 

GentleCure IG-SRT offers several significant benefits:  

Efficient Treatment Process 

GentleCure is the only skin cancer treatment that incorporates ultrasound imaging. This allows you and your doctor to see the cancer, accurately target the tumor, and witness its progressive shrinkage throughout the treatment process. 

Additionally, GentleCure offers shorter treatment sessions than Mohs surgery, so you can spend less time in the clinic and quickly resume your daily activities. Unlike surgical excision, there is no downtime.

Minimally Invasive Procedure 

Unlike Mohs surgery, GentleCure does not involve anesthesia, incisions, stitches, or the need for reconstructive surgery.  

One of the significant advantages of GentleCure is its ability to preserve the natural cosmetic appearance of the treated area. Unlike Mohs surgery, which may require the removal of some healthy tissue, GentleCure targets cancer cells while minimizing damage to surrounding healthy skin. This approach reduces the risk of scarring and leads to superior cosmetic outcomes.

Patients have experienced exceptional outcomes, allowing them to overcome skin cancer while preserving their appearance.

How Much Does GentleCure Cost in Oregon?  

The cost of GentleCure at our Medford, Oregon, practice depends on the complexity of the procedure and varies by patient. We provide a personalized pricing estimate during your consultation. Most major insurance carriers cover GentleCure for skin cancer treatment, and our team can assist you in navigating the process. 

What Should I Expect During GentleCure IG‑SRT Treatment? 

Step 1

During GentleCure treatment, you are comfortably seated while your doctor applies a gel to the treatment site. Using a small imaging wand, the doctor creates a detailed image of the cancer on a screen. They measure the tumor’s size and shape, calculate the treatment dosage, and define the treatment area. 

Step 2

Once the imaging process is complete, your doctor positions the device’s arm over the treatment site. A precisely targeted dose of X-ray energy is delivered to the cancer site, effectively treating it while minimizing harm to the surrounding healthy tissue. Ultrasound imaging allows you and your doctor to see the cancer and closely monitor its response throughout the treatment. 

Step 3

GentleCure is typically delivered in stages, usually involving 3 to 5 treatments per week for 4 to 7 weeks. Each treatment session is painless and can be completed in as little as 15 minutes. Up to 3 tumors can be treated simultaneously. Your doctor adjusts the dosage at each stage based on how the tumor responds to treatment. 

Step 4

This treatment requires no downtime, and since the procedure is nonsurgical, there are no stitches or scarring. Your dermatologist provides detailed aftercare instructions for a seamless recovery process.  

Take Control of Your Health with an Annual Skin Exam

When it comes to skin cancer, time is of the essence. The sooner potential issues are identified, the higher the likelihood of successful treatment. Yearly skin cancer screenings are the cornerstone of early detection, enabling us to identify any warning signs and act quickly. Think of your annual skin exam as your proactive step toward a lifetime of skin health.
