Why Proton Therapy?
One of the key components in the fight against cancer is finding the best treatment option that can achieve the highest clinical results.
For each type of cancer listed below, proton therapy reduces overall toxicity, improves quality of life during and after treatment and increases the long-term survival rates for certain tumors. Additionally, proton therapy can be used to treat recurrent tumors and patients who have already received radiation.
Using innovative technology, we can deliver a higher dose of radiation with pinpoint accuracy to the specific shape, size and location of your tumor. Since the radiation is more controlled, cancer cells are destroyed and the healthy tissues beyond the tumor are left unharmed.
Treatment is delivered in a comfortable outpatient setting. Though it varies, treatments typically take only 15 to 20 minutes each day and are delivered 5 days a week for approximately 8 weeks.
