Her search led the 78-year-old Freehold resident to Edward Soffen, MD, a board-certified radiation oncologist with Princeton Radiation Oncology and medical director of the Radiation Oncology Department at CentraState’s Karen Olbis Radiation Oncology Center. After examining Alyce, he told her that she was a perfect candidate for skin brachytherapy.
Alyce received seven skin brachytherapy outpatient treatments over the course of about two weeks at the Statesir Cancer Center at CentraState. The radiation delivery time for each session was only about three minutes. According to Dr. Soffen, the cosmetic outcome is superb following some initial redness and healing at the area of application, and Alyce’s prognosis is outstanding.
“The team there was so calming and the healing progressed exactly the way Dr. Soffen said it would,” adds Alyce. “I’m completely relieved, and I’m thoroughly convinced that this was the way to go.”
