In Memoriam of Rodney R. Rodriguez, Ph.D., M.D.
We are deeply saddened by the passing of Dr. Rodney Rodriguez and he will be dearly missed by all of us at Mohave Centers for Dermatology and Plastic Surgery.
Mohave Centers for Dermatology and Plastic Surgery are continuing to offer full time services with state of the art Electronic Brachytherapy which is a non-invasive technique enabling the delivery of individualized, customized, focused and highly accurate x-ray therapy for non-melanoma skin cancers. Electronic Brachytherapy allows the physicians to deliver x-ray therapy in much fewer sessions than traditional external beam radiation and insures maximum radiation safety.
We want our patients and the community to know that we have physician coverage for all services for Electronic Skin Brachytherapy. Currently we have full time coverage by radiation oncologists, for our patients who might be a candidate for Electronic Skin Brachytherapy Radiation treatments.
The doctors of Mohave Centers for Dermatology and Plastic Surgery offer cutting edge, non- invasive and outpatient x-ray therapy in the treatment of non-melanoma skin cancers as an alternative to surgery in the following patients: patients who do not wish to have an additional invasive procedure, patients with close surgical margins high risk lesions or positive margins after surgery, patients with recurrent lesions, patients where surgery in clinically contraindicated (eg. patients on blood thinning medications or poor lower leg circulation) or patients with skin cancers in cosmetically sensitive areas such as the face, scalp, ears, hands and legs.
