About Avion Medical Skin Centres.
Avion Medical Skin Centres are the specialist treatment providers of Rhenium-SCT® (skin cancer therapy) for Non-Melanoma Skin Cancers. This new treatment offers an alternative to traditional invasive options. Working with OncoBeta GmbH to bring this innovative therapy to Australia, our new treatment centre is based in the heart of the biomedical precinct in central Melbourne.
"After having surgery on my last NMSC, which was a mixture of Basel cell carcinoma and Squamous cell carcinoma, my son-in-law told me about the Rhenium-SCT as a treatment for my next lesion. Having the therapy was a great experience. There was no cutting, it was completely painless, simple and the results are just fantastic. I would definitely recommend this therapy to everyone."
