SKIN CANCER

Skin Cancer: The First Dayton Difference

More than 1 million people are diagnosed with skin cancer each year.* Whether it's you or a loved one, a skin cancer diagnosis means it's time to move fast.

First Dayton schedules you within three days of your referral and uses the most advanced technology to treat your skin cancer.

Electron Beam Radiation

Melanoma – the deadliest of all skin cancers – doesn't stand a chance against Dr. Hughes and electron beam therapy (EBT). Using a linear accelerator, EBT delivers powerful cancer-fighting radiation to the involved layers of the skin and spares the tissues and organs beneath. It's extremely effective in beating skin cancer and other tumors close to the surface.

Leipzig Robotic Radiation

For basal and squamous cell carcinomas, Dr. Hughes and his team specialize in a unique way to fight skin cancer called Leipzig Robotic Radiation. This alternative to surgery targets cancer cells without pain or damaging surrounding healthy tissue. First Dayton is the first and only medical facility in the area to offer Leipzig Robotic Radiation and has used it to treat more than 800 patients with outstanding cosmetic results.

Plus, Leipzig helps fight cancer in difficult-to-treat locations such as ears, noses, lips and shins.
