BOCA RATON, Fla., Sept. 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Sensus Healthcare, Inc. (NASDAQ: SRTS), a medical device company specializing in the treatment of non-melanoma skin cancers (NMSC) and other skin conditions such as keloids with superficial radiation therapy (SRT), announced today it has been named the winner of the Frost & Sullivan 2016 Global Non-melanoma Skin Cancer Therapy Technology Leadership Award for its innovative therapy treatment technology. Sensus Healthcare scored an average 9.5 out of 10 possible points on the Frost & Sullivan Technology Leadership Scorecard across 10 different criteria assessing technology leverage and business impact.
"We are grateful to Frost & Sullivan for recognizing our SRT technology for a second time. In 2014, we were awarded the Frost & Sullivan New Product Innovation Leadership Award for Non-melanoma Skin Cancer Therapy, and now we are being recognized for our technology leadership," said Joseph Sardano, President and CEO of Sensus Healthcare. "This award highlights the transformation Sensus has undergone in recent years as well as the acceptance we have achieved with physicians and patients. The Frost & Sullivan award not only validates our technology, but supports our efforts to increase the awareness of our unique technology solution to effectively address an important niche of the cancer treatment market."
Each year, Frost & Sullivan recognizes companies that lead the development and successful introduction of high-tech solutions that address customers' most pressing needs and alter the industry or business landscape in the process. After a careful review of the NMSC industry, Bhargav Rajan, Frost & Sullivan Healthcare analyst, noted that "advances in diagnoses, increasing awareness, and the nature of the disease itself have made the management of NMSC ripe for overhaul."
"There is an urgent market need for a patient-friendly, clinically-effective, and aesthetically-appealing option for the treatment of NMSC," Rajan continued. "We believe Sensus' SRT devices best the competition in radiation therapy and surgery by providing a scar-free, aesthetically-appealing, and clinically-effective therapy. Sensus deserves credit for bringing back superficial radiation therapy as a viable option and, in some cases, offering the only option for treating skin cancers and dermatological conditions."
Sensus Healthcare was launched with the goal to develop and market advanced medical devices that would allow the company to achieve 2 goals: address large and underserved market opportunities within the medical device arena and offer a disruptive and compelling value proposition to physicians and patients alike. The company's SRT therapy treatment devices achieve both. SRT is virtually painless; does not require anesthesia, cutting, or stitching; does not result in bleeding or scarring; and is cost effective.
