Radiosurgery is an atraumatic method of cutting and coagulating soft tissue, without the post-op pain and tissue destruction of electrocautery or a surgical blade. The cutting effect results from the heat generated by the resistance of the tissues to a radio-frequency wave, which is applied with a fine wire electrode. The heat disintegrates and volatizes the cell in the path of the waves, causing the tissue to split apart as though it had been cut with a razor-sharp knife. The blood vessels in the path become coagulated, which means little or no bleeding occurs with this procedure, and results in healing without scarring.How is Radiosurgical Treatment administered?
The skin lesions are first numbed with a tiny injection of local anesthesia. A grounding pad is applied to the patient’s body to assure a closed electrical circuit. The appropriate surgical electrode is chosen to eliminate the unwanted skin tags, warts or moles on any part of the skin. A topical antibiotic may be placed on the superficial wound. Results are immediate and permanent.
