Welcome to the

Radiotherapy and UV-Therapies

So-called physical therapies play an important therapeutic role. We treat various skin diseases with light or surface radiation therapy – often supplemented by medication therapy or skin care programs.


Applications in the following illnesses:


Light therapy

  • Light sensitive disorders
  • Inflammatory skin diseases such as psoriasis, neurodermatitis, eczemas
  • Vitiligo (white spot disease)
  • Certain types of skin cancer such as actinic keratosis or basal cell carcinoma


Radio (surface) therapy

 

For skin cancer, when operative removal of the tumor is not possible or very difficult. This applies in the following cases:

 

  • Surgically difficult to access areas, such as the medial canthus of the eye in older patients where surgical anesthesia would be problematic
  • In severe types of skin cancer, in combination with a global treatment approach and appropriate medicinal therapy
For other special indications such as lentigo maligna and Kaposi’s sarcoma;

Keloids
