Proton Therapy

About Proton Therapy

What exactly is “proton therapy” cancer treatment?

Simply put, it’s the most precise form of radiation therapy available today. 

  • Unlike traditional radiation, protons stop at a certain depth and do not continue to travel through the body.
  • Surrounding healthy tissue is undamaged by radiation. 
  • Tumors close to important body structures (brain, spinal cord, optic nerve, heart, lung, bladder, and rectum) can be more safely treated.
