Powerful Protons. Precision Treatment.
Proton therapy is an innovative radiation treatment that precisely targets tumors by delivering radiation at exact depths. Highly effective for many types of tumors, proton therapy drastically reduces radiation exposure to surrounding healthy tissue and organs. This precision leads to lower side effects both during and after treatment, with most patients able to continue with their usual activities with little interruption.
Is Proton Therapy Right For Me?
Proton therapy is effective in treating many types of cancerous and non-cancerous tumors. Even if your condition is not listed on our site, you may still be a good candidate for proton therapy.
If you are interested in proton therapy as a treatment option, we can schedule a consultation with a radiation oncologist to determine if you are likely to benefit from proton therapy. Please call us or Request More Information online.
