Princeton Radiation Oncology and CentraState Healthcare System joined forces and developed the first proton therapy center in the Somerset, New Jersey / Metro New York area. At the ProCure Proton Therapy Center in Somerset, New Jersey/Metro New York, we provide patients with exceptional and personalized patient care with the most advanced proton therapy technology available. We are committed to ensuring patients' seamless care beyond proton therapy.
The center is the only proton facility in the New York – New Jersey – Connecticut tri-state region to offer pencil beam scanning (PBS). PBS is an ultra-narrow proton beam that deposits radiation doses even more precisely within a tumor. It allows doctors to delicately and precisely "paint" the tumor with radiation, further minimizing radiation exposure to healthy tissues and reducing the risk of side effects.
If you or someone you love would like to learn more about proton therapy for cancer treatment, please call 1-877-967-7628 or request more information online. Our team will help you learn more and can set up an initial consultation to help determine if proton therapy is right for you. Click here to see what tumor types can be treated with proton therapy.

Us Too of Central NJ Prostate Cancer Support Group
There’s not a well-worn path from a prostate cancer diagnosis to any "best" treatment at any stage of managing the disease. Before making any treatment decisions, it’s very important to invest the time to become fully informed about all appropriate treatment options and the potential management of related side effects. Prostate cancer survivors who attend meetings—sometimes along with spouses/partners—find invaluable information and perspective from their peers who quite often have "been there - done that" relative to their experience managing the various aspects of prostate cancer. The interactive format of a support group meeting is an educational forum that facilitates conversations to exchange information among group members assembled with the common goal of empowering each other with the knowledge that comes from experience.
The group meets the third Thursday of each month from 6-7pm. Meetings are free of charge and open to newly-diagnosed patients, patients currently undergoing treatment, prostate cancer survivors and caregivers. Upcoming meetings: 1/19/17, 2/16/17 and 3/16/17.
Please contact Jerry Rymar to RSVP at (347) 563-2280.
