Best Keloids Surgeons in Dominican Republic
The most effective treatment for keloids is surgical excision followed by rapid postoperative radiation therapy. When surgery and cosmetic radiation are combined, the recurrence rate is reduced by around 20%. For recurring keloids or patients with a high risk of recurrence, such as greater dissemination, marginal resections, or unfavorable sites, radiation is very beneficial. When radiation is started the day after the keloid is surgically removed, it is most effective.
A properly coordinated care between the surgeon and the radiation oncologist is required to ensure that the timing of the surgery and radiation is ideal.
