FREIBURG FLAP PROCEDURE

Home / For Patients / Technology / FREIBURG FLAP PROCEDURE

This innovative treatment, developed in cooperation by Dr. S. Stange from the Albert Ludwigs University in Freiburg, Germany, provides an excellent alternative for orthovoltage or electron treatments. With its flexible silicone applicator, the Freiburg Flap can wrap around irregular surfaces to conform to any part of the body. As a result, it provides exceptional dosing control and dosing positioning, while allowing accurate verification of the treatment area.

By incorporating the Freiburg Flap procedure into our treatment program, patients are offered highly customized treatments that yield significant results in six to eight visits versus 20 to 25 visits as compared to traditional external beam radiation. The treatments are well tolerated by patients and are good for all different types of skin cancers, including cutaneous lymphoma and Kaposi’s sarcoma. It is especially effective on cancers located on sloped or curved areas of the body, such as the head, face, neck, foot and ankle.
