One in 3 Texans will develop some form of skin cancer. Across the U.S., 90 percent of non-melanoma skin cancer cases (the most common kind) are associated with UV radiation exposure from the sun. People exposed to the Texas sun need to know how to protect themselves—and be aware of every option available to them. The Dermatology Office of Dr. Ellen Turner just brought a non-invasive, painless treatment for skin cancer that few people know about called Superficial Radiation Therapy (SRT) to the area. SRT uses focused, low-dose radiation to stop cancer cells from spreading, without damaging healthy surrounding tissue, and has a 95% cure rate for non-melanoma skin cancer.
Dr. Turner offers a complete array of dermatology services to patients, including medical, cosmetic, surgical, laser, and superficial radiation procedures at two clinic locations including Park Cities at Preston Center, and Irving. She completed medical school at Texas Tech University Health Science Center in Lubbock in 2001. She performed my dermatology residency at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, where She received a strong clinical foundation for assuming the care of such dermatologic conditions as skin cancer, acne, rosacea, psoriasis, and immunobullous diseases of the skin.
